Crain's Detroit Business: Ilitch Business alum Mark Davidoff to lead Fisher Group
Mark Davidoff, managing partner of the Michigan office for Deloitte LLP, will retire from the business advisory firm at the end of the year to run the financial activities of one of Detroit's wealthiest families. Davidoff, 60, will leave Deloitte after 14 years to serve as the president and CEO of The Fisher Group LLC, which handles the financial affairs of the Max Fisher family, effective Jan. 2, 2020. Davidoff said with Deloitte's mandatory retirement age of 62 approaching, the Fisher Group opportunity was serendipitous. "This was an opportunity that presented itself and given the importance of the Fisher family to Detroit ... (it was a) perfect alignment for what I am passionate about," Davidoff told Crain's. "This was an opportunity that only comes once in a career." Davidoff earned a bachelor's degree in accounting from Wayne State University in 1981 and a master's degree from Northwestern University.
