The Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan in Detroit has announced Mark Davidoff as its newest board member. He is the president and CEO of The Fisher Group, the central office of the family of Max M. Fisher, overseeing strategy, operations, and investments.
“We are honored that Mark is willing to lend his extensive experience by joining the Community Foundation board of trustees,” says Mariam Noland, president, of the foundation. “His passion for philanthropy and community development, combined with his strategic expertise, will be tremendous assets to the growth of the Community Foundation.”
Davidoff previously served as Deloitte’s Michigan managing partner, working as the firm’s top leader in the state and overseeing more than 1,200 professionals. He was responsible for strategy, operations, talent, and business development.
Before his time at Deloitte, Davidoff served in various leadership roles over an 18 year period, including in the health care and nonprofit sectors at Henry Ford Health System, Mercy Health Services, and the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit.
Davidoff serves as chair of the board of both the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and the Michigan Israel Business Accelerator. He was previously chair of the board of the Detroit Regional Chamber of Commerce and the chair of the Mackinac Policy Conference.
He has also curated and led more than 70 missions to Israel with governmental, corporate, and community leadership, including three Michigan governors, more than 50 leaders from Michigan’s legislature, and about 150 other leaders from across the state since 2015.
After completing his bachelor’s degree in business administration from Wayne State University, Davidoff earned his master’s degree from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.
The foundation supports activities designed to benefit education, arts and culture, health, human services, community development, and civic affairs through its permanent community endowment. Since its inception, it has distributed more than $1.1 billion through more than 74,000 grants to nonprofit organizations throughout Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, Monroe, Washtenaw, St. Clair, and Livingston counties.
