Marcus Kemblowski, Chief Executive Officer at Apex Entertainment Co., has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for dedication, achievements, and leadership in entertainment management.
After obtaining an Associate of Science in business administration and management from William Rainey Harper College, Palatine, Illinois in 2000, Mr. Kemblowski excelled as general manager at Home Depot, Madison Wisconsin from 2006 to 2013, where he grew overall revenue by 6% and also got five department managers promoted to general managers of other locations by developing their skills and providing them a solid background in all areas of the business. During his tenure, the store’s revenue was the highest in the state of Wisconsin at $40 million dollars annually and had a staff of just under 400 employees.
From 2013 to 2016, as general manager of Knuckleheads Bowling and Indoor Amusement Park, Wisconsin Dells, Mr. Kemblowski increased revenue from $2.5 million to just under $4.5 million annually over a three-year timeframe, in part by aggressively putting a plan in place to increase food and beverage sales while keeping the food cost at 25% and beer and liquor at a combined 19%. With a staff of approximately 165 employees and 10 managers, a strong focus was committed towards online sales and web development to allow customers the efficiency of pre-purchasing wristbands and trampoline time to reduce wait times and offer a better customer experience.
Joining Apex Entertainment New England, Marlborough, Massachusetts as general manager in 2016, Mr. Kemblowski became chief operating officer in 2019 of an entertainment complex offering a custom-designed destination with multiple state-of-the-art entertainment options that include indoor go-kart racing, 10-pin and candlepin bowling, laser tag, billiards, simulated golf, a ropes course, and refreshments.
Mr. Kemblowski attributes his success to the skills he learned from his previous jobs, but more importantly, to having the people who invest their time and people who believed in him, such as Apex Entertainment owner Robert Walker. He considers one of the greatest achievements of his professional career to be when Apex Entertainment, under his leadership, received the Business of the Year Award in 2020. In the next five years, Mr. Kemblowski looks forward to expanding the company to become a national business.
