Marc Rettig

Founder and Principal at Fit Associates

Pittsburgh, USA

After a first career as a software developer, Marc found that the field of design allowed him to combine his passions for ethnographic methods, language, systems thinking, and people. In 2005 he co-founded Fit Associates, which uses research, facilitation, cultural immersion, and coaching to connect clients’ design and strategic decisions to life outside the cubicles, and to their own core purpose. Marc’s client list includes Philips Home Healthcare, Whirlpool, Comcast, Microsoft, and BBC. He has taught both lecture and studio courses at Carnegie Mellon’s Graduate School of Design and the IIT Institute of Design. Marc frequently speaks and conducts hands-on workshops in industry and academic settings around the world, and he is a faculty member of the groundbreaking Masters in Design for Social Innovation program at the School of Visual Arts in New York.
