Tony McGee never took the straight route. When he retired after 11 NFL seasons in 2004, he planned to spend his time on standard wealthy-athlete endeavors: a sports radio program in Orlando, a gig with ESPN’s Cold Pizza talk show, stakes in a restaurant and sports complex. But a few detours later, he came to realize he needed to focus on a single task. “When you have all this stuff going on, you can’t concentrate on any one thing,” says McGee, still fit at 43, over chicken tacos at a lakeside Orlando restaurant. “I was the quintessential jack-of-all, master of none.”
Today McGee runs an unusual enterprise for a retired jock: He’s the founder and CEO of four-year-old HNM Global Logistics, a freight forwarder that arranges import/export, warehousing, and distribution for corporate clients that need to move goods.
