Celebrating his 10th year of teaching at Moravian, Marabella began his career teaching courses in management, human resources, organizational development, and business strategy, at the undergraduate and graduate levels. In 1997, he was appointed director of the College’s MBA program while retaining most of his teaching responsibilities.

During his tenure, Marabella received the Timothy M. Breidegam Memorial Faculty Service Award and was selected by the Senior Class as Faculty Speaker for Commencement Exercises, both in 2000, and he was honored by the Moravian Chapter of Omicron Delta Kappa with the Helping Hand Award for the Outstanding Organization Advisor in 2001.

A native of Reading, Pennsylvania. Marabella served as the executive director of Leadership Berks from 1985 to 1997.
