    Get to know our 2022 HEART-Level Leadership Award Winner, Michael Maynes!

    We believe that HEART-level leaders are the embodiment of key attributes at the intersection of creating vision and holding space for others. These leaders commit to generous intentional service to others. They create bold strategic pursuits that strengthen their community and are innovators of ideas that bring change. 

    Fellow Mens’ PDF member and nominator, Ed Schenkein, says of Michael “[he] modestly leads his team, seeks no attention to himself, and develops leaders with honor and dignity.” One-third of Michael’s staff is based in Ukraine. At the onset of crisis, “Michael and his leadership team told their Ukrainian team members to defend their country, protect their family, continued to pay them, developed support resources, and provided travel vouchers…”

    The winner of our HEART-Level Leadership Award gets to designate a charity. Community and intentional commitment are two aspects of HEART-level leaders. Michael’s charity, United24, benefits the people of Ukraine. Please read more about United24’s mission below.

    UNITED24 was launched by the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy as the main venue for collecting charitable donations in support of Ukraine. Funds will be transferred to the official accounts of the National Bank of Ukraine and allocated by assigned ministries to cover the most pressing needs.

    The Five Values at the Heart of all we do


    When we are humble, we move beyond our own egos and approach others with a sense of true humanity. Our self-awareness enables us to continually grow.


    We deeply engage our peers, teams, and employees with intention, approaching each person as an individual— listening, understanding, connecting.


    For real. It’s not just a common phrase, it’s how we live. Authenticity becomes the baseline for how we show up and interact with others.


    We create abundant and resilient outcomes by designing healthly roles for ourselves and others. Health and well-being are standards for how we achieve success.


    Focusing on our shared commitment to service allows us to build a community dedicated to helping others succeed. We serve first.
