January 28, 2013

OMAHA, NE (January 28, 2013) – The Scoular Company is pleased to share that Marshall E. Faith, Vice Chairman and one of the company’s modern-day founders, has been selected for induction into the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce Business Hall of Fame.

Marshall is one of five area leaders who will be recognized later this spring for their exceptional contributions to the growth and development of Omaha–contributions that are significant enough to warrant recognition in the permanent Business Hall of Fame display at Omaha’s Durham Museum.

“This is a well-deserved honor and a big deal,” says Chuck Elsea, CEO of The Scoular Company.  “It confirms what many of us at Scoular have known for years.  Marshall’s leadership of our company and commitment to long-term employee ownership exemplify the true meaning of servant leadership, honor, and integrity.”

Marshall bought a majority interest in the Scoular-Bishop Grain Company in 1967, serving as CEO for 23 years and Chairman for 25 years.  Under his leadership, Scoular has grown and flourished from a three-grain-elevator operation with 10 employees to a company of nearly 700 employees and more than 70 locations that manages feed, food, and renewable fuel supply chain solutions for customers around the globe.

Chuck continues, “Alongside his devotion to growing a vibrant company, Marshall is deeply committed to his family, the Omaha community, and all other communities where Scoular does business.”

Marshall and his wife have four grown children.  He has served in leadership roles for industry and civic organizations, including the Nebraska Leadership Council, the Strategic Command Consultation Committee, the Aksarben Board of Governors, and the boards of Boy Scouts, Nebraska Methodist Hospital, Joslyn Art Museum, United Way of the Midlands, Youth for Christ/USA, Creighton University, and Bellevue University.  Marshall is a former Director of both Paxton & Vierling Steel Company and Norwest Bank Nebraska (now Wells Fargo).

Additionally, Marshall established The Scoular Foundation to put a portion of the company’s net profits to work helping people, organizations, and projects in communities where Scoular people live and work.
