About me - Ed Marek, editor

Edward S. Marek, president, Marek Enterprise


Edward S. Marek founded MAREK in August 1987 and has served as its president since that time. He founded the internet stations "Your dot com for Africa" in August 1996, "Talking Proud, USA - Service & Sacrifice" in March 2003, "Wisconsin Central" in September 2005, and “Line of Departure” blog in January 2012. 


“Talking Proud” and “Wisconsin Central” were taken off the internet in early 2019 due to a catastrophic software failure. As a result, Mr. Marek has founded this web site, “My Wisconsin Eyes.”


Mr. Marek brings 17 years entrepreneurial leadership experience in the high technology, business management and international political analysis fields. Mr. Marek has since closed the Africa web site to concentrate on the other three internet stations.


Prior to converting his company’s focus in 1996 to information services, Mr. Marek’s company worked within the American and European defense industries, assisting several of the world's largest high technology businesses in developing new business and technology applications. He also helped them convert their advanced and emerging defense technologies to commercial applications, identifying and evaluating the international potential of products and services, and designing global competitiveness initiatives.


Previous to this, Mr. Marek was a senior systems analyst of Betac Corporation, a systems engineering, software development and systems integration firm.


Mr. Marek concluded a distinguished 20-year career with the United States Air Force in 1987, retiring with the rank of lieutenant colonel. During his military career, he served in a variety of challenging command, operational and staff positions in the communications, intelligence, and force planning fields. His roles included commanding and operating the Air Force’s tactical intelligence and communications hubs in Europe and on the Korean peninsula, operating tactical intelligence reconnaissance flights over Southeast Asia during the Indochina War, and managing and deploying the ground systems components of an advanced strategic space system. Has held TS/SCI security clearances.


Mr. Marek holds a bachelor’s degree in history from the University of Buffalo and successfully completed all course work for a master’s degree in public administration from the University of Oklahoma. He is also a graduate of the USAF's Air War College.
