Marques Warren

Marques Warren is a 2nd generation ACDBE business owner at Warren’s News & Gift, a Seattle concessions firm with a history dating back to 1994 when they commenced operations at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. Over the last several years Marques has transformed his retail company into a niche concessions lender, DBE Loans, which finances ACDBE firms across the United States.

Marques grew up in Seattle, WA and then attended the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania where he received a degree in Finance and Management. Marques has served on the AMAC Board as a Regional Director since 2013, and has identified capital limitations for ACDBEs as a key barrier to entry that he is committed to overcoming for the industry.
