Marshall Jespersen’s track to the automotive business would not be considered traditional by many. In 1961, he graduated from Greenwich High School in Greenwich, CT, earned a B.A. in Chemistry from the University of Connecticut in Storrs in 1966. He proceeded to serve in the United States Air Force from 1966 to 1974, stationed in Southeast Asia and Europe, and held jobs at Clairol in Stamford, CT, Dow Chemical Company in Tarrytown, NY and the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers in Hubbardston, MA before joining the automotive industry. Upon joining the automotive industry, he decided to join NADA 20 Groups to learn from the talented and experienced people across the country. In addition to the 20 Groups, he decided to get his M.B.A. from the University of New Hampshire.
Marshall not only brings his vast talents and education to Porsche Stratham but also his commitment to giving back. He quickly turned the parent company, International Cars, Ltd. into the only employee owned dealer group in all of New England.
“One of our core values is to be a contributing member of every community in which we do business,” Jespersen believes. “We have contributed money, personal labor and fundraising events to many organizations.” Those groups include Emmaus in Haverhill, Veterans Northeast Outreach Center in Haverhill; American Red Cross; American Red Cross Club of UNH; Wounded Warrior Projects; Make A Wish NH; Aids Action Committee of MA; In Control Crash Prevention Training and many more wonderful organizations throughout our community.
“We’ve contributed literally millions of dollars over the past 25 years and we are proud of this commitment to our communities,” states Jespersen.
Marshall and his wife Elena, have five children and four grandchildren. He is also a Porsche enthusiast and current owner of a 1961 356B Coupe that is currently being restored to display in the Porsche Stratham show room.
Thank you for your supporting the only employee owned Porsche dealership in New England!
