“We look forward to continuing to work with Marcus in his new role as Executive Chairman of the board,” said William Nettles, Independent Board Member and Chair of the Audit Committee. “His extensive experience and strategic insight have been instrumental in evolving our company since he joined the board. We are confident that his leadership will position us for the next phase of growth to deliver value to our employees, customers, and shareholders through what we anticipate will be an exciting blend of new brands and services.”

With more than 25 years of experience in business development and retail growth, Lemonis brings broad expertise in growing and scaling companies from the inside out. He is currently the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Camping World Holdings, Inc., responsible for growing both Camping World and its sister membership and services company Good Sam from the ground up to become the World’s Largest RV and outdoor retail affinity group. He’s well-known for his business acumen highlighted on CNBC’s The Profit where he famously advised small businesses to focus on their people, process, and products to achieve stability and profitability. Lemonis also helps homeowners improve the value and function of their homes on his hit TV show, The Renovator.

In connection with Lemonis’s service as Executive Chairman, he will receive no salary or guaranteed equity.
