You could say that Marshall & Ilsley is older than its home state of Wisconsin: Businessman Samuel Marshall drove a two-horse stagecoach into Milwaukee in 1847, one year before Wisconsin attained statehood, and opened an exchange brokerage (his first office was a rented portion of a cobbler's shop). Charles Ilsley joined the firm in 1849, and the two men's names have stuck together ever since.
Over the decades, Marshall & Ilsley grew to become a fully diversified financial services corporation, with offices throughout the Midwest, South and Southwest. As of early 2009, the corporation had $63.5 billion in assets, approximately 400 offices and retail branches and over 10,000 employees. Its headquarters remain in Milwaukee.
In 2008, the firm picked up a number of prestigious workplace awards; it ranked No. 4 on Fortune's list of "America's Most Admired Companies" in the super-regional banks category. It was also dubbed a "Best Place to Work" by Milwaukee Magazine and The Management Association.
