Marques Ogden

Ex-NFL, CEO, Speaker and RPC member

A little background about Marques, in 2003, he was drafted into the NFL as an offensive lineman, after 5 years of playing in league, he decided to retire and pursue a career in construction and contracting.  At the age 27, Marques founded a construction company called Kayden Premier Enterprises. The company had fast growth and in 2010, Marques won The African American Subcontractor of the Year Award in the state of Maryland. Eventually, his business went bankrupt, losing almost 2 million dollars on one project in a matter of 90 days.  


During his darkest hours, he pulled himself together, got a part-time job as a custodian, and with hard work and determination became an inspirational keynote speaker, executive coach, best-selling author, and marketing leader, helping to build the success of others.

Building a Sustainable Buy Black Movement

We passionately believe that we as African American’s have an opportunity to create a Sustainable Buy Black Movement. The foundation has been laid but we need to continue to deliver the message and create collaborative efforts. The Los Angeles Black Business Expo serves as a platform to discuss and inform more people about the framework and implementation strategies for a Sustainable Buy Black Movement.
