We are Polaris Talent

We trace our roots back over 40 years to when Marshall and Marie, lifelong friends, met in junior high. When Marie was looking for business partners she could trust and invest in she turned to Marshall and her daughter, Roma, to help her realize a dream and disrupt an industry while having fun doing it.
