A prolific author and sought after speaker, Hampton has put forth more than 100 columns throughout his career and has been recognized globally for his dynamic community wellness initiatives and his ongoing support to combat childhood obesity. There isn’t a successful leader in our industry who has not been impacted by Geoff Hampton”, states Verdun. “His passion for the industry, support of independent owners, and his ability to communicate is unmatched by anyone I know. He’s the best of the best and thrilled to have him part of our team.”

Connors and Hampton join an already “stacked deck” of talent led by Founder Bobby Verdun and Vice President Richard Synnott. “It’s a “Dream Team” of sorts on many levels as we’ve got decades of proven success to offer clubs on so many levels”, states Vice President Richard Synnott. “The sum of all the parts creates an exceptionally diverse and unmatched array of experience and success we can bring forth to our growing client base.”

Rounding out the team is University and Recreation expert Pam Wetherbee-Metcalf, former Los Angeles Lakers Strength and Conditioning Coach Tim Difrancesco, Attorney Ed Shapiro, feasibility expert Brian Goodman, technology guru Michael Horsch Fizz, and Australian consultant Tinashe Musakanye who heads up offices for Australia and New Zealand. States Verdun, “This is a resilient industry but also one that is in need of direction. It’s time to bring all facets of active living together, provide support for new independent owners looking to pursue their dreams, and build the confidence and credibility back we’ve lost during the pandemic. We’re excited to be at the forefront of that challenge… and clearly have the people to do it.”
