Who We Are
At Maxletics, our corporate value statement is only two words long: “Athletes First”.
With this acknowledgment that we can support great brands without exploiting the athletes involved, we’re committed to creating the best influential marketing platform in the world while helping our athletes gain the resources they need to compete at a world class level.
Today, Maxletics is the largest influential sports agency in the U.S. combining nearly 1,500 athletes with over 55 million followers to the best brands on the planet.
Founder & CEO
Jan’s experience in building and scaling high-growth companies – as well as his experience as a former college basketball player – lends itself to the fast-paced, athlete-focused environment inside of Maxletics. Jan’s a tech vet who ran the marketing unit at Valvoline, before taking over the same unit at Lycos, Inc. where the company performed the fastest IPO in the history of NASDAQ with a stock run-up of 39,000% before being sold to Terra Networks for $4.5 billion. Jan’s held the CEO role at Gemini Voice Solutions (sold to Novo Networks), Gelazzi, Inc. (sold to Big Freeze LLC), Universal Energy (sold to PetroChoice) and the CMO role at Turbine, Inc. (sold to Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment).
He knows startups and co-founded Startup Colorado after earlier serving on the board of the Colorado Springs Technology Incubator. When he’s not leading the influential marketing innovation at Maxletics, he cheers for his Colorado State Rams where he’s been feted as the Honor Alumnus for the College of Business.
VP of Business Development
Brad creates new business partnership opportunities with Maxletics, while also leading the athlete support process. Brad’s been responsible for bringing on nearly 1,500 athletes – over half of them Olympians – and their 55 million+ fanatical followers. He’s a technology veteran who has held senior posts at Sanborn Mapping and Pikes Peak Cargo Secure. He also helped remake the Colorado entrepreneurship landscape as a board member of Peak Startup. And Brad knows Olympians as he once attempted to make the USA Skeleton team before breaking his arm while participating.
You’ll find Brad in places like Lake Placid, Colorado Springs, Calgary, Chule Vista and other big game hot spots, supporting the athletes to whom he dedicates his time.
