“I realize that distance could never sever the strong ties I had with my family.”
Marcus Moreno ‘92, BAAS
Allstate Marcus Moreno
Insurance Agency, Inc.
At four years of age, Marcus Moreno saw his father leave to work like he usually did, but this was no ordinary day, for his father would never return. The lack of a father figure would impact Moreno deeply for many years. In grade school, he was constantly being picked on because he was the smallest, skinniest and most naïve. Not knowing he was dyslexic, he was labeled an underachiever and he rebelled. A physical education coach helped him change dramatically. He found his outlet: athletics.
He played baseball at various colleges, hoping to one day play professionally. But that day never came, and he was forced to make a career decision. He eventually decided to go into business for himself - a decision that today has him achieving Allstate’s highest honor in five consecutive years. He has been elected by his peers to serve in the Texas Region Advisory Council and on the board of the Allstate National Advisory Board representing agents throughout the country.
