One of Maynard’s key leadership principles is to work for higher purposes in life — it is reflected in his stellar career as well as his contributions and dedication to improving communities and giving back to social causes. Maynard was instrumental in the development of the LiveOps Foundation, which was created with the goal of supporting activities that enhance and serve the communities in which LiveOps employees live and work, as well as the associated issues that impact quality of life. In its first year of operation, LiveOps Foundation was named “Company of the Year” by Entrepreneur Foundation for the rich, well-rounded programs it included. In addition, he also created the Webb Family Foundation, which is dedicated to helping the underdogs in society meet their full potential.
