Paul and Gail Nelson, Founders of
Marathon – Boston, MA

Our Team

Starting today, we will be providing you a weekly introduction to who we are. We felt, for our very first feature, it was only logical to highlight Paul and Gail Nelson, the founders of Marathon.

Marathon has grown to be one of Boston’s Best moving companies by emphasizing teamwork and treating its customers like family. And talk about leading by example, Paul and Gail have been an amazing team for over 22 years of marriage, 16 of which have been working side by side at Marathon.

And since both are lifelong Bostonians with many relatives in the area, Marathon has helped move countless members of their own family into new homes. They’ve also had almost 20 family members work with them at Marathon. Working summers and breaks while in college has become sort of a family tradition which both their boys, Tommy and Michael, are currently part of. Keeping connected to so many family, friends and the Boston community has been one of the greatest reward of running Marathon for both Paul and Gail.

Outside of the Marathon office, they love being outdoors. Whether it’s skiing in the winter, long walks in the spring and fall, or kayaking in the summer, they truly feel New England is the best place you can be.
