Marc Middleton is Founder and CEO of Growing Bolder. One of the leading voices in the active lifestyle movement, Marc is the co-host of the Growing Bolder TV and Radio Shows, executive producer of Surviving & Thriving, editor of Growing Bolder Magazine, author of Growing Bolder: Defy the Cult of Youth, Live with Passion and Purpose and Rock Stars of Aging, director, videographer and writer of the feature length documentary film, Conquering Kilimanjaro, and a featured blogger on the Huffington Post.
A multiple Emmy Award-winning broadcaster, Marc became one of the industry’s first bloggers—filing daily online reports from the Sydney Olympics. He was one of the first to recognize the power and influence of the rapidly growing 50+ audience and the coming cultural shift that would change everything we thought about the possibilities of life after 50.
Determined to position himself at the intersection of emerging technologies and the impending age wave, Marc took a huge risk in 2006, walking away from a news anchor job to launch the multi-platform Growing Bolder network. Since then, Growing Bolder has created one of the world’s largest libraries of active-lifestyle content, producing shows for all platforms and custom branded networks for the retirement and healthcare industries.
In his spare time, Marc practices what he preaches. He likes to paint, travel and is a multiple world record-holding masters swimmer and a nationally ranked high hurdler.
