Mike Dee Biography
Mike Dee was named as Chief Executive Officer of the Miami Dolphins and Sun Life Stadium by Stephen M. Ross on May 3, 2009. Dee came to South Florida and the NFL after a distinguished 15-year career in Major League Baseball, where he played a lead role in the resurgence of two franchises and was a member of two World Series Championship teams.
Since joining the Dolphins, Dee has laid out the three fundamental commitments that guide the franchise during the Ross ownership era: 1) To put a team on the field worthy of the fans support with the goal of competing for a playoff berth each season; 2) To consistently strive to enhance the fan experience at Sun Life Stadium and aggressively market the team to a broad region and diverse fan base; and 3) To be active participants in the community.
Dee has spearheaded the teams efforts to live up to these commitments. In order to grow the clubs fan base, he created a series of programs in the western and central regions of the state and worked tirelessly to improve the game-day experience for the teams fans by implementing a host of entertainment and culinary innovations that has made the atmosphere at Dolphins home games unique in the NFL. On the business side, Dee finalized a ground-breaking naming rights deal for the stadium with Sun Life Financial, revamped and improved the clubs broadcast and internet platforms and developed a series of customized programs designed to enhance the teams relationship with its business partners. Dee has also placed a particular emphasis on the clubs community relations efforts, having introduced a host of new charitable initiatives, such as the teams annual blood drive and the Dolphin Cycling Challenge to benefit Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.
After beginning his sports career in San Diego with the Padres (1995-2002), Dee followed his mentor, CEO Larry Lucchino, to Boston and assumed the role of Executive Vice President of Business Affairs for the Red Sox. He was promoted to Chief Operating Officer in 2004, a position he held until his departure to join the Dolphins. During his tenure in Boston, the Red Sox won two World Series titles and set franchise records for attendance and revenue each year including an MLB record for consecutive sellouts dating back to 2003. Other noteworthy achievements while in Boston include bringing annual concerts to Fenway Park and directing the expansion of the teams business and real estate interests that stemmed from the eight-year renovation of Fenway Park and the surrounding neighborhood. Dee also has a history of working in the Sunshine State, having consummated a 30-year agreement with Lee County Florida to build the Red Sox a publicly-financed Spring Training facility that is set to open in 2012.
Dee also served as President of Fenway Sports Group, a company that he created in 2004 under the direction of Red Sox owners John Henry and Tom Werner. An enterprise charged with diversifying the business interests of the Red Sox beyond baseball, FSG developed a wide array of endeavors across the sports and media landscape. In February, 2007, FSG acquired a 50% interest in Roush Racing and formed what is known today as Roush Fenway Racing, NASCARs largest race team. Dee served on the board of Roush Fenway as a Managing Director, during which time the team won two notable championships Carl Edwards 2007 Busch Series Championship and Matt Kenseths Daytona 500 victory in February 2009.
Dee is active in many different charitable and philanthropic activities and serves on the board of the Pan Mass Challenge, a cycling event and the nations largest athletic fundraiser. To date, the Pan Mass Challenge has raised more than $260 million for cancer research. Dee is an avid cyclist and rides in the event each August.
