Max Carey

The Speaker Who Maximizes Your Potential

Two words that are very often used to describe Max Carey are "Dedicated" and "Enthusiastic". Not surprising, given his overwhelming desire to help people succeed in their personal and professional lives.

Throughout his life, Max has thrived on meeting challenges head-on. At Columbia University, he was an Ivy League and NCAA record-setting defensive back. After graduation, he became a Naval aviator, and was one of the elite few fighter pilots to achieve Top Gun certification.

In 1981 he founded Corporate Resource Development (CRD), a marketing and sales consulting firm. A few years after it’s inception, CRD was named to the INC 500 list of fastest-growing privately held companies in America. The challenges of balancing a successful business and a successful personal life are captured in his widely-acclaimed book The Superman Complex – Achieving the Balance that Leads to True Success.

In addition to being the President of his own company, Max serves on the Board of Directors for Outback Steakhouse, k-Force, Inc. and is the Entrepreneur in Residence at the University of Southern California Marshall School of Business. He is also the founder of Wingspread, a non-profit organization for children, and is a past recipient of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Humanitarian Award.
