The baseball doesn’t fall far from the mound. Like his father who was a college pitcher and founder of the largest networking group in California, Justin followed suit. He played baseball at the University of San Diego, and graduated in three years with a B.A. in Business Administration. He was an ESPN Academic All-American, and 6th round draft choice of the Philadelphia Phillies in 2005. He played three years in the minor leagues.
Justin is a managing director at The Mentor Group and Mentor Securities. The Mentor Group is a full-service mergers and acquisitions advisory, valuation and appraisal firm. He has a specialty in sell-side transactions and consulting in all types of securities. He sits on the board of advisors for Apt2B, an e-commerce furniture company. He and Kent have teamed up to create AthletesTouch to bring current and former college and professional athletes together in business.
When it’s not Opening Day or the World Series, Justin is with his newborn son Davis Jr. and wonderful wife Missy traveling, drinking great coffee, and enjoying life in Southern California.
Marcellus Vernon Wiley is truly the big man and poster child of AthletesTouch. How can you possibly argue with a guy who placed education first and went to Columbia, an Ivy League school, got his degree, and, then played 10 seasons in the National Football League. He was selected to the AFC Pro Bowl team in 2001, as a member of the San Diego Chargers. He currently co-hosts SportsNation on ESPN 2 with Michelle Beadle and Max Kellerman. He also co-hosts an afternoon drive-time sports talk radio show on ESPN 710AM in Los Angeles with Max Kellerman. He is also on many other shows, and charismatic genius!
If James Brown is the Godfather of Rock N Roll, then Davis Blaine is the Godfather of Business Networking. Davis started one of the most prolific business networking groups which is now in multiple states and thousands of members. He is a father, businessman, entrepreneur and published author. He also is the founder and principal shareholder in the Mentor Group and Mentor Securities.
