Breakfast with Bernie Marcus
Bernie Marcus is chairman of the board of The Marcus Foundation, which focuses on Jewish causes, children, medical research, free enterprise and the community. He also co-founded The Home Depot, Inc., the world’s largest home improvement retailer, and served as chairman of the board until his retirement in 2002. His company revolutionized the home improvement business with its warehouse concept.
Encouraged by his mother to “always give back,” Mr. Marcus’ contributions are given with the expectation that they will make a significant difference. For instance, the Georgia Aquarium, which was dedicated to the people of Georgia and the associates, customers and shareholders of The Home Depot, is the largest aquarium in the world with over 11 million visitors since its opening. Its construction in downtown Atlanta has not only brought millions of people to the area, it has generated more than $6 billion in construction and development in the area.
Mr. Marcus considers the founding of the Israel Democracy Institute in Jerusalem among his most important efforts. This non-partisan and non-political think tank deals with the complex issues facing the Israeli democratic society.
In 2012, Mr. Marcus co-founded Job Creators Network (JCN) (www.jobcreatorsnetwork.com), a nonpartisan organization formed to help stop harmful government policies from breaking the backs of small business owners and killing job creation. The best defense against bad government policies is a well-educated electorate and JCN does this through targeted public, policymaker and employee education campaigns. Employers have the legal right, and Job Creators Network believes the obligation, to help employees “connect the dots” between bad government policies and the harmful impact on their job, pay, benefits and families.
