Joey McMahon is the Vice President of Impact Investment at KBI Biopharma, the creator of the childhood cancer technology Anddit, Founder & CEO of The Monday Life, and a former manager of the Duke Blue Devils men's basketball team.[1]

Education[edit]

McMahon attended Duke University for his undergraduate degree. He was a 4-year student manager for the Duke Men's Basketball Team.[2]

McMahon also earned his MBA from Duke University's Fuqua School of Business. During that time, he was a brand strategist for the Coach K Leadership Center and the recipient of the Class of 1990 Scholarship for Service.

100MileGroup[edit]

From 2009-2011, McMahon was the Director of Operations at the 100MileGroup, a NYC brand-incubator launched by Marquis Jet titan Jesse Itzler. The incubator was part of several major branding deals that catalyzed start-up firms.

The Monday Life[edit]

McMahon founded The Monday Life in 2011 and is currently the CEO. The Monday Life is a national non-profit organization that helps hospitalized children feel better & heal faster by improving their patient environments.[3] The non-profit is at six children's hospitals across the country. The Monday Life is uniquely known for its crowd-sourcing fundraising platform,[4] which is based on donors giving $1 every Monday. The Monday Life recently filmed a music video with patients and members of the Duke Men's Basketball team which was featured on both CBS[5] and NBC Sports.[6] McMahon was also the host for The Monday Life's segment of Google's and Mashable's first ever Giving Tuesday Hangout-a-thon[7] and has spoken about the cause at Fuqua's Sustainable Business & Social Impact conference and with Jessica Jackley, founder of Kiva, at The Duke Colloquium.

In November of 2016, McMahon co-hosted Give Gala 2016, a sold-out charity event where attendees offer their services and talents, rather than money, to support hospitalized children.

KBI Biopharma[edit]

McMahon is also currently the Vice President of Impact Investment at KBI Biopharma, a biopharmaceutical contract development and manufacturing organization that accelerates the development of innovative discoveries into life-changing biological products and expands global access of medicines to patients in need. [8]

Anddit[edit]

McMahon is also the creator of Anddit, a technology that connects people to support resources. Anddit partnered with the Coalition Against Childhood Cancer, the Association of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Nurses, and the Association of Pediatric Oncology Social Workers to deliver this technology - called the Hope Portal - to patients nationwide.
