Albion prepared Marty.
Marty maintained a competitive streak at Albion, both in the classroom and on the court, where he served as co-captain of the basketball team. He became a member of what is now the Gerstacker Institute for Business and Management and landed an internship at Deloitte, a leading public accounting firm. Through these experiences, Marty discovered his ability to lead and inspire others.
Early in his career, Marty became a close friend and confidant of a young Barack Obama, and went on to serve as advisor and treasurer for Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign. He holds an M.B.A. from the University of Chicago—which he attended on a full-tuition scholarship—and after more than a decade leading The Parking Spot, a $400-million airport parking company he founded, he has launched The Vistria Group, a private equity firm focused on the education, healthcare and financial-services industries.
