We made it to Episode 47 of the Behind the Golf Brand Podcast. In this week’s episode, I interview my good friends Andrew Redvanly from Redvanly Golf Apparel.
REDVANLY is a modern-day tale of two young guys’ bootstrap grind, family and friends hustle to build a brand and New Age family business that had more than relevancy. It was born from heart, soul, ambition, vision and passion for sport. Andrew, a hockey player, played team sports through his collegiate career. Shortly after graduation, he found himself on the court or links, with every spare moment he had. It was then he conceived the idea for a premier active wear brand, intended for those competing inside of the individual sports categories.
Soon after, he left his job at a prestigious sports talent agency to go back to caddying to pursue his dreams and to start REDVANLY. Before long, his pharmaceutical sales rep cousin, David, became the brand’s sole investor while also leading sales going from doctors’ offices to golf shops. They built the company from scratch, fueled by the desire to conceptualize a brand for athletes, which was actualized by athletes.
Belief and passion remain the cousins’, and now brothers’ and friends’ driving force to drop everything, bootstrap a brand from scratch and truly achieve their goals.
