The Great Commission remains the mission of the Believer on the field and in the marketplace. On Friday, May 6th, the Financial and Alumni Development Office and the Center for Faith and Culture will host the 2nd annual Faith at Work Conference to encourage and resource business owners and leaders to leverage their positions within the marketplace to make disciples and glorify Christ.
Mark Whitacre is a seasoned executive who is extremely appreciative of redemption and second chances in America. Mark is the highest-level executive to ever turn whistleblower in U.S. history. His undercover work with the FBI during the ADM scandal was the inspiration for the major motion picture, “The Informant,” starring Matt Damon as Mark Whitacre. And was the inspiration for the Discovery Channel Documentary, titled “Undercover”. Drawing from his unique history, Mark provides one-of-a-kind insight into corporate ethics, corporate greed, and the warning signs of a flawed corporate leadership.
“I thank God for a second chance! I was blessed to keep my family intact during some very difficult times in the mid-1990s. I have an amazing wife of 42 years, who held everything together during some tremendous adversity. I don’t take that lightly. I thank God every day for my wife, Ginger!” – Mark Whitacre
