We are delighted to invite you to an uplifting and significant event hosted by the Christian Chamber of Commerce of Tampa Bay. We have the honor of featuring Mark Whitacre, an inspiring speaker whose remarkable journey from corporate whistleblower to champion of ethics and faith captures hearts globally. He served as an FBI informant, served time in prison, and has had a book and movie made to share his amazing story.

Mark currently serves as the Executive Director of T-Factor at Coca-Cola Consolidated, Inc., where they intentionally live out the Kingdom at work and hire as many pre-believers as possible so they can meet Jesus at work – over 1,100 in the past two years. Mark will share his extensive experience to promote corporate integrity and Kingdom values in business.

Hyatt House Tampa Airport Westshore | 5308 Avion Park Drive Tampa, FL 33607

Biography of Featured Guest Speaker

Mark Whitacre is an Ivy League Ph.D. and is considered the highest-ranked executive of any Fortune 500 company to become a whistleblower in U.S. history, and was responsible for uncovering the ADM price-fixing scandal in the early 1990s. However, it was actually Mark’s wife Ginger that forced Mark to turn himself into the FBI and she is the true whistleblower of the largest price-fixing scandal in US history.

Mark Whitacre is the Vice President of Culture & Care and the Executive Director of t-factor at Coca-Cola Consolidated since 2019. Coca-Cola Consolidated is a faith-friendly, purpose driven, publicly traded company with an official Purpose Statement of “To honor God in all we do by serving others, pursuing excellence and growing profitably”.

Mark’s undercover work with the FBI during the ADM scandal was the inspiration for the 2009 major motion picture, "The Informant," starring Matt Damon as Mark Whitacre, and the 2010 Discovery Channel documentary ‘Undercover” archived on Mark Whitacre’s website, . The book, "Mark Whitacre Against all Odds", describes the rest of the story about how faith has molded Mark's life since the ADM scandal. Mark’s story is mostly about how God transformed his life, and about redemption and second chances. It is an inspirational story about a family surviving against all odds.

Douglas Burris, former chief of U.S. Federal Probation in the Eastern District of Missouri, has stated publicly, "The story about Mark Whitacre's redemption and second chance is one of the most inspirational stories of our time."

After completing B.S. and M.S. degrees at Ohio State University, Mark then earned his Ph.D. degree at Cornell University in biochemistry (1983). After he completed his Ph.D., he worked for some Fortune 500 companies including Ralston Purina (now Nestle’), Degussa (now Evonik), and Archer Daniels Midland (ADM). Mark was hired at ADM, the 56th largest company on the Fortune 500 at the time, when he was 32 years of age. As the president of the BioProducts Division from its launch, he was the youngest divisional president in the history of the company.

Mark and his wife of 44 years, Ginger, have three grown children.
