Marc Eckō: Simon & Schuster Speakers Bureau

Marc Eckō

Founder and Chief Creative Officer of Marc Eckō Enterprises

“Marc is living proof that you can be a marketing and business whiz and still be a true artist.”


Once a graffiti artist with no connections or fashion pedigree, Marc Eckō left the safety net of pharmacy school to start his own company. Armed only with hustle, sweat equity and creativity, he flipped a $5,000 bag of cash into a global corporation now worth hundreds of millions of dollars.

At the Podium

One of the most provocative entrepreneurs of our time, Eckō has built his company into a billion-dollar fashion and media empire. Now he steps out from behind the rhino to reveal a visionary formula for building an authentic brand engineered for success.

Additional Information
Eckō is a fashion designer, entrepreneur, investor, and artist. He is the founder of Marc Eckō Enterprises, a global fashion and lifestyle company, and founder and chairman of Complex Media, the world’s leading provider of fashion, entertainment, lifestyle, and product trends to young male tastemakers. Complex Media Network includes 110+ websites that generate more than 700 million page views and 70 million unique visitors per month.

His book, Unlabel: Selling You Without Selling Out, is scheduled to be released in October 2013. As instructive as it is innovative, Unlabel will empower you to channel your creativity, find the courage to defy convention, and summon the confidence to act and compete in any environment. It’s a visual blueprint for how to grow both creatively and commercially by testing your personal brand against the principles of “The Authenticity Formula.”

George Lucas has said, “Marc Eckō designed his future while putting his own spin on history. He’s fearless and he built his brand out of his love of art and pop culture, without being seduced by nostalgia. Marc may have been inspired by Star Wars, but he made it his own—and no one has made Star Wars cooler than Eckō. His unique vision became a global force in fashion. For art and execution, this is the text book I wish I could have bought in college.”

Eckō serves as an emeritus board member to the Council of Fashion Designers of America, Big Picture Learning, and Tikva Children’s Home. He lives in New Jersey.
