After graduating from the University of North Carolina (Go Heels!) in 2012, we both worked as management consultants in Atlanta (Andrew with Bain, Brent with McKinsey). We each received early promotion offers, and faced a choice between putting our heads down and making a run at partner vs. trying something new like business school (or launching Primer).
We consistently used sports conversations to help build relationships at work – sports are such an opportunity for connecting with coworkers, clients, and friends and family. Our goal is to help people enjoy that connection.
Brent’s grandfather used to say you’ve found success when your vocation is your avocation, and we truly believe that running Primer is the intersection of our passion and skillsets. We love talking sports, helping people succeed, and playing the ‘sport of business.’ Launching and growing Primer is the most addicting problem we’ve ever tried to solve.
