Description

Join us for the 26th Annual Breakfast:

A Reason for Hope

Mark Whitacre, corporate whistleblower (ADM) and Executive Director, Coca Cola Consolidated, Inc

We are honored to announce Dr. Mark Whitacre as our 26th Annual Breakfast keynote speaker. Mark Whitacre is an Ivy League Ph.D. who is considered the highest-ranked executive of any Fortune 500 in U.S. history to become a whistleblower. He was responsible for uncovering the Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) price-fixing scandal in the early 1990s. In an associated scandal, Mark served eight and a half years in Federal prison, where God redeemed his life and gave him a reason to have hope.

Currently, Mark is the Executive Director at Coca Cola Consolidated, Inc. and sits on the board of Cypress Systems, Inc, a biotech company involved with human clinical trials for cancer.

Drawing from his unique history, Mark provides an inspiring story of redemption and one-of-a-kind insight into corporate ethics. At the Annual Breakfast, Mark plans to tell the story of ADM, the scandals, and his faith journey.
