ENTREPENEUR

During his playing career and continuing through retirement, Keith made a point of what he calls “investing in himself.” Notably, he gave his first NFL paycheck to an investor friend who worked at Goldman Sachs to begin building his financial portfolio. As a player he took advantage of League incentives to engage in business workshops at Harvard and Stanford Universities. He’s become a partner in restaurant and hospitality projects and owns a Los Angeles-based marketing firm.

In 2014 he completed his executive MBA at The George Washington University’s School of Business. He is a founding partner of Transition Sports & Entertainment, a digital branding and creative agency focused on helping athletes craft their images off the field and prepare for future endeavors. 

PHILANTHROPIST

As child, Keith never knew his father. His mother wound up in an abusive relationship. Upon the death of his stepfather when Keith was 12, he was sent to live with a friend’s family for what was supposed to be two months. Two months turned into six years, and Keith, like millions of Americans became a part of the foster care system.

In 2003, Keith started the Believe and Achieve Foundation to help foster children realize and achieve their dreams.

In 2009, he created the Steve McNair Iron Will Scholarship fund to help kids go to college. He remains active in both the New York and Nashville communities.
