Mike Thorne

A father of 3 adult women, married to my best friend for over 28 years, and someone who has experienced working for some of the great brands as an executive in their respective industries (President of Yankee Candle wholesale, President Russell Athletic Team division, and SVP Rawlings Baseball), I am grateful for all my experiences. In my "new life" I have started my own LLC called Ask Inside which mentors, invests in, and donates time to visionary entrepreneurs and non-profits committed to providing access and resources to underserved communities of youth. While doing that I partnered with someone and founded a non-profit called Homefield 4 Champions which provides resources to communities in need through sports and the arts. As a triathlete, college baseball player, and self-driven leader by trade, I inject a passion to achieve greatness for those I serve while in turn, working in partnership with stakeholders to deliver impact through sustainable growth. At heart, I believe that at the pinnacle of success for organizations are the core values of integrity, team spirit, initiative, adaptability, and initiative.
