Ep. 54 – Sport & Social Group President, Rob Davies

Our guest today is Rob Davies, the President of Sport & Social Group.

Sport & Social Group hosts sports leagues and events for adults.

After graduating from Queen’s University and Wilfrid Laurier, Rob began a career in management consulting, which he found particularly spirit crushing. When he found the Sport & Social club in its early years, he loved the entrepreneurial feel and industry vibe. Starting from 3 employees and 200 teams, SSC has grown to host 10,000 teams playing across 11 locations. They have a goal of hitting 1 million members and are well on their way to scaling the organization.
