Kasey Stinson (aka “Maca”)
Kasey Stinson is an entrepreneur from California. Since he offers a variety of business services, his career currently revolves around business consulting. Having worked as a highly sought-after tax professional in Los Angeles for over a decade, his business and finance skills have been refined. He is also highly involved in developing media properties for licensing and sale in addition to being a business consultant. A passionate learner, Kasey Stinson began researching everything he could find in Forbes magazines that he did not understand. Eventually, he acquired expertise and started multiple media ventures, including one that landed him in prison for eight years. After he was released from prison, he founded the group Men of Change, which provides men with tools to help them transition from illegal activities to legal ones.
As Co-Founder and Chief Financial Officer of Victory Starts Now, Kasey Stinson leads the organization. This is a nonprofit organization that is the leading provider of community-based restoration services for the Los Angeles County’s Office of Reentry and Diversion. Kasey has had a passion for helping people since he was very young. The meaning of “help” has evolved over time, but the purpose remains the same: Kasey thrives on leaving people, businesses, and even animals better off than they were. A nonprofit organization, Victory Starts Now provides alternatives to incarceration and helps the once incarcerated become productive citizens again. During his tenure at the company, he has helped the company grow to over 25 facilities in 2023. In the next five years, Kasey believes that he will be elevating his organization to be able to broker more deals and create more opportunities for the Ben Free Project.
