It took Tony Marmo 35 years to go full circle. In 1980, as The Kingston Hospital human resources director, Tony became one of the first clients of the professional employment agency that he would acquire in May 2014. During the in-between decades, Tony moved through various executive roles at the hospital, most notably as its President and CEO for nine years until 2003.

In May 2014, Tony purchased the Hudson Valley’s premier staffing agency from founders Rob and Lorraine Normann. “From the beginning of my career, I developed a good idea of what employment agency clients are looking for. Normann Staffing has long met their needs, and we continue to do so. We know how crucial people are for long term success . Any business is only as good as the staff providing services.”


Tony brings deep civic and community connections to HVEDC. In addition to being a co-founder of the recently created economic development board, Ulster Strong, Tony co-founded the Ulster County Italian American Foundation. He currently serves as the Chair of the Ulster County Workforce Development Board. He is a member of the Kingston Rotary Club and served as Past District Governor for the Hudson Valley region known as District 7210.
