This week on Homegrown Milwaukee -- a conversation with Greg Marcus, president and C.E.O. of Milwaukee-based Marcus Corporation.

The company has a diverse portfolio, in Wisconsin and nationwide.  Here in Milwaukee, the Marcus Corporation operates the InterContinental, Pfister, and Hilton City Center Hotels.  It owns 16 other hotels and resorts around the country.

And chances are, if you've seen a movie in the area, you've been to a Marcus-owned theater.  The company is the fifth largest theater circuit in the U.S., according to its website.

88nine asks Mr. Marcus five questions -- what are his Milwaukee roots?  What about Milwaukee inspired him to live and work here?  How has Marcus Corporation improved our city?  How has Milwaukee changed over his lifetime?  What advice does he have for young people growing up here?
