Devin Thorpe, Champion of Social Good

Devin Thorpe thinks he is the luckiest person alive. After being “let go” from the best job he’d ever had—as the Chief Financial Officer of the multinational food and beverage company MonaVie—he and his wife ended up living in China for a year where he wrote Your Mark On The World and embarked on the career he’d always wanted yet hadn’t dared dream. More recently, Devin completed his latest book, Crowdfunding for Social Good, Financing Your Mark On The World.

Now, as an author, advisor and Forbes contributor, Devin is devoted full time to championing social good, writing about, advocating for and advising those who do good. He travels extensively, sharing inspiring messages as a keynote speaker, emcee, and trainer.

As an entrepreneur, Devin ran—at separate times—a boutique investment banking firm and a small mortgage company.  He served as the Treasurer for the multinational vitamin manufacturer USANA Health Sciences years before becoming CFO for MonaVie. Over his career he led or advised on the successful completion of $500 million in transactions.

Devin squeezed in two brief stints in government, including two years working for Jake Garn on the U.S. Senate Banking Committee Staff and another year working for an independent state agency called USTAR, where he helped foster technology entrepreneurship.

Devin is proud to have graduated from the University of Utah David Eccles School of Business, which recognized him as a Distinguished Alum in 2006.  He also earned an MBA at Cornell University where he ran the student newspaper, Cornell Business.

Today, Devin channels the idealism of his youth with the loving support of his wife, Gail.  Their son Dayton is a PhD candidate in Physics at UC Berkeley (and Devin rarely misses an opportunity to mention that).
