Marcus Lemonis

CNBC's "The Profit"

Best known for improving businesses on CNBC’s The Profit, Marcus Lemonis is more than a
television personality. He is a successful entrepreneur, advocate and philanthropist who strives to
make financial literacy accessible to all.

In a world where business leaders are lauded for being cutthroat, Marcus does it all with heart
and compassion for the people, process and product he aspires to elevate. But as with many
success stories, his road has not always been an easy one. At four days old, Marcus was left at
the steps of a Lebanese orphanage by his birth mother. He was soon adopted and brought to
Miami, Florida where he was raised by his loving adoptive parents, Sophia and Leo Lemonis.
Although he struggled with weight issues, bullying and a lack of self-confidence as a child, it
was his mother, Sophia, who taught him to embrace his unique qualities, allowing him to
discover that he had a head for business and a gift for helping others. As a young man, Marcus
honed his entrepreneurial spirit while working at his family’s automotive dealership. By the age
of 25, Marcus seized upon an opportunity to reshape the way recreational vehicles and outdoor
equipment were sold. Under his leadership and vision, Camping World would grow to become
the Nation’s largest RV retailer and would make Marcus Lemonis one of the most successful
businessmen in America. As a result, he has also become an in-demand motivational speaker.
Next, Marcus set out to prove himself in another arena, as host of his own TV show.

His hit series The Profit, in which Marcus helped turn around and improve businesses, ran for eight
seasons on CNBC. It spawned spin offs including the award-nominated Streets of Dreams,
featuring Marcus educating himself and viewers about the financial workings of key industries,
as well as special episodes of The Profit. With each great success for Marcus, the lessons of
humility imparted by his mother have helped keep him grounded, reminding him that the true
riches of life are found in giving back. With tens of millions of dollars donated to charitable
organizations and invested in independent businesses, he is an advocate for the underdog and
finds his strongest inspiration by investing in people. Marcus Lemonis may have been born in
Lebanon but he is 100% American-made.
