Ken Marissael ’71

Ken Marissael graduated from The Waldorf School of Garden City in 1971 and went on to attend Adelphi University earning a B.S. degree in Earth Science.

After college, Ken moved into the scientific field of lab supply distribution with Curtin Mathe­son Scientific, where he quickly earned honors and was promoted to a newly formed division within the company called Network, selling lab supplies and equipment through physician of­fice distributors. Ken was the top rep for the division for three consecutive years. He was then encouraged to join the clinical division selling directly to reference labs and hospitals. He was awarded honors as the top rep in the country by many manufacturers and was often in the “Top Ten” reps in the entire company.

At this point, CMS was purchased by Fisher Scientific, the largest distributor in the country. Ken won the primary lab supplier contract for what is now known as the Northwell Health System, one of the largest healthcare organizations in the country. It was the single largest contract ever awarded in Fisher Scientific history. Ken is recognized for his knowledge and ex­pertise by his peers throughout the country. Because of this Ken, was sought after and went to work for VWR Scientific, the second­-largest distributor. He was quickly recognized for his rapport with customers, mentoring new sales representatives, and being the division’s top rep for seven consecutive years.

Ken is currently the principal owner of M & K Sales Associates, a corporation that sells scien­tific and laboratory supplies to anatomical pathology labs and reference labs. His company has been in business for eight years. Ken says that the best compliment he ever received that meant more to him than all his awards came from a customer who told him, “You have set a new standard for all sales representatives.” Ken now enjoys woodworking and gardening, and especially his grandchildren.

Ken Marissael entered The Waldorf School of Garden City in fourth grade when his mother “Madame” became the French teacher for the lower school. Ken’s daughter (Juliane ’09) is an alumna, and his grandson began the early education program this September.
