Maurie Daigneau is many things: a Christian, a husband, a father, a theologian, an entrepreneur, a former athlete, coach, and mentor. As a young man, he was the quarterback and co-captain of Northwestern University’s football team, earning first team All-Big Ten honors during his senior year in 1971. He then went on to have a long and successful career as an entrepreneur, founding and running the pioneering athletic footwear company, Playmakers, Inc., and the national telecommunications firm, Affinity Corporation.
Along the way, Daigneau has lived an active life of faith. He earned an MS in theological studies from the Garrett-Evangelical Seminary in Evanston, Illinois. He was the Wisconsin State director of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. He has also been a speaker and presenter at a variety of conferences, retreats, and events. Perhaps the greatest ongoing source of his faith experience is the weekly men’s Bible study group that he has led and been a participant in for over thirty years.
He is the father of five and the grandfather of thirteen. He lives in Brookfield, Wisconsin with his wife of forty-eight years. You can read more about Maurie at www.mauriedaigneau.
