Who is the 2023 Legacy Magazine MDI Man of the Year

The Mission of MDI – To cause greatness by mentoring men to live with excellence and as mature masculine leaders, create successful families, careers and communities.

Every year since 2014, this periodical has crowned a “Legacy Magazine MDI Man of the Year.” It has been bestowed on that man who has done the most to live the mission and core values of MDI, as well as promote the organization in some public way, showing up as an example for successful families, careers and communities. The key factor here is that the man makes public this men’s organization in some manner.
