Marcus D Hiles is devoted to quality. His success in business can be attributed to virtues of perseverance, attitude, hard work and sheer determination. He came from a humble background where it was considered a big day to get ice cream or donuts. His father, a inner city minister provided the basics but it was by no means a silver spoon upbringing.
In a college years Marcus had to sleep on the living room floor for a year without sleeping bag or mattress. He says his diet consisted of green beans and generic hotdogs. He the started what would later become western rim with little money and just scraped by payroll. He was 28 yrs old when he founded this venture.
He reinvested everything back into the business to ensure its success, living on nothing. He grew the business this way preferring to promote internally than hire outsiders into the business. He attributes much of his success to his training he received for his Masters in Business Administration at Pepperdine University in Malibu, California.
As well as many donations to schools, hospitals, churches and charities his major contribution to society is the donation of hundreds of acres of parklands and wildlife reserves for the general public valued in the millions of dollars. As part of the ongoing philosophy of his businesses, all properties are designed to be energy efficient and utilising the latest eco-friendly technologies.
