On a special edition of DeKalb Business Today, host Matt Holmes explores a new concept of “one stop shopping” in the health care insurance industry. Marcus Robinson discusses how Harken Health – which just opened December 3 in downtown Decatur – is providing customers everything from health coverage to health care, while encouraging exercise and healthy eating.
A professional experienced in sales strategies and products for the health care industry, Marcus Robinson is the Vice President of Sales for Harken Health. He oversees sales operations development, leads and formalizes all sales distribution strategies in commercial segments, directs the recruiting and hiring of sales and account management staff and cultivates relationships with distribution partners. Marcus also facilitates work across the company’s divisions to drive sales growth and retention.
Prior to Harken Health, he was the Director of Sales and Account Management for the Small Business division at UnitedHealthcare, a company he joined in 2007. In each of his four roles during his career there, he focused on small business insurance sales strategies, products and services.
Marcus earned his B.S. in Marketing and Information Management from the University of Tennessee.
Growing up, Marcus’s family moved around throughout the Midwest, and he finished high school in Fayetteville, Arkansas. He and his wife have their hands full with their toddler son, but they do make time to enjoy an active lifestyle by participating in Crossfit as well as outdoor activities. Marcus leads a Sunday School class at the First Baptist Church of Atlanta, and if he is lucky enough to steal any spare time, he likes to ride motorcycles around the city.
