Adopted from an orphanage in 1974, Marcus Lemonis was given a new shot at life. After he graduated highschool, Lemonis became interested in the automotive industry due to his adoptive family owning several dealerships. A family friend came to Lemonis with an idea to start an R.V. chain, which led to Lemonis becoming CEO of Holiday R.V. Superstores. By 2011, Marcus had acquired FreedomRoads, Camping World, and Good Sam Enterprises. Now, Lemonis has a net worth of $900 million and is the host of CNBC’s The Profit.
