Detroit Public Television produces documentary on Ilitch School friend Florine Mark

Detroit icon and Weight Watchers CEO Florine Mark rose up from humble beginnings on Detroit’s west side to become one of the nation’s most prominent business leaders and motivational figures. As the CEO of Weight Watchers —who once struggled with extra pounds herself — Florine used her personal experience to become a successful entrepreneur and a leading national voice on health and weight loss. She is a member of the Mike Ilitch School of Business Board of Visitors.

Recognizing her significant contributions and positive financial impact on our region, Florine Mark will become Detroit Public Television’s first Bravo! honoree. The distinction is given in the spirit of DPTV’s Society for Excellence supporters, whose gifts of $1,000 or more, ensure ongoing efforts to provide quality educational programming to our 2 million weekly viewers.
