CS: How were you introduced to Epsilon, and why did you decide to work with them?
It’s funny how life works. Former business associations can often be the catalyst for future business relations — as is the case here. While I was president and COO of Velocity Sport Performance, a national sports performance franchise, I worked with Epsilon’s Neil Doherty, who at the time owned franchise locations in New Jersey. Fast forward 10 years, we meet up at IHRSA after I had joined WORKOUT ANYTIME, and he was heading sales and marketing for Epsilon’s fitness practice. We discussed the many interesting things Epsilon was doing in the fitness space and given our growth goals, we hired Epsilon as our brand and member acquisition agency of record.
