Marcus Lemonis from "The Profit" is the host of th CNBC reality series. In each episode, he will step in to save struggling businesses while investing his own cash in the process. Viewers will get to see his personal mantra ring true: "Business success is about the three P's: People, Process and Product."

There is no secret why Marcus Lemonis continues to make his mark on the business world — with allies like NASCAR, Allstate, Winnebago, Coleman and nine of America's largest banking institutions — and on anyone who is within earshot of him. He leaves not just an impression, but an imprint, on everyone he meets as he has that charisma that few possess.

As Chairman and CEO of Camping World and Good Sam Enterprises, Lemonis leads close to 6,000 employees in over 100 cities across the US. He is a passionate, dynamic road warrior whose entire life has been on the move — which is synonymous with the RV lifestyle.

The blogs label him "the most controversial man in the RV industry" and he's perfectly fine with that label because at the end of the day, it's not about being popular; his scorecard is measured by his employees, customers and family.

Lemonis was recognized for having "more impact on the industry than any single individual or company in recent memory as an agent of change and retail consolidation," when RV Business Magazine named him their 2007 Newsmaker of the Year. In addition, Crain's Chicago Business featured him in their 2005 edition of "40 under 40"; and in 2008, Ernst & Young named him Entrepreneur of the Year. Most recently, Lemonis has been recognized for his multiple appearances on NBC's "Celebrity Apprentice," and an episode of ABC's "Secret Millionaire," in which he chose to share his personal wealth with members of one of the most disadvantaged communities in the nation.

A firm believer that success in life and business requires a good balance of mind, body and spirit, Lemonis is all about 'getting things done' and driving results through collaboration, partnerships, and relationships. He is also a visionary and a risk taker. His ideas continue to captivate, motivate, and sometimes frustrate his staff; but only because they can rarely keep up with his limitless energy.

Lemonis has also become a hands-on owner in ONE Foods (Organic — Nutritious — Enriching), a family-owned manufacturer of certified organic and kosher, raw, non-GMO, gluten-free delicious snacks. In addition to his partnership with ONE Foods, he also has a vested interest in several other healthy eateries, including Rose's Bakery and Wheat Free Cafe in Evanston, Ill., which he saved from closing its doors on Christmas Eve 2012.
