Executive Biographer Services
What Is an Executive Biographer?
Since 2001, Marquette Books has published more than 100 books on a wide range of scholarly and popular topics.
In 2013, MB Editor Dr. David Demers began offering an "executive biography" service, which is tailored specifically to help current and retired high-level corporate executives leave their legacy through publication of either a book-length biography (third-person voice) or autobiography (first-person voice).
This service is suited for executives who don't have the time or interest in writing their own professional history but who want to tell their story to family, friends, colleagues and/or society at large. Dr. Demers will work personally with a limited number of clients. His role will be custom-tailored to meet the needs of his clients.
See samples of Dr. Demers' writing below.
