Mike Haynes is a thought leader, educator, entrepreneur, and advocate for health and wellness issues. Yet, Haynes is most noted for his professional football career in the National Football League ("NFL") where he has been recognized as one of the top 50 NFL players of all time. He played 14 seasons (split evenly between the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Raiders) and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1997. More recently, however, Haynes is receiving awards for his accomplishments off the field.
He returned to the NFL in 2002 where he assembled an impressive team that broke barriers and brought about meaningful improvements and change to help players cope with transition into and out of the NFL. Haynes has received numerous honors by following his passion to make a positive contribution in the world.
After a bout with prostate cancer in 2009 Haynes began to envision an economic business model that connected like-minded people and/or organizations to achieve meaningful and sustainable solutions in the health and wellness sector from an entrepreneurial perspective.
Haynes earned his degree in Finance from Arizona State University and Executive Education Program honors in Business from the University of San Diego, Stanford, Wharton, Kellogg and Harvard Business School.
