Meet the Team - Brendan Rice

Meet Brendan - our resourceful Marketing Operations Manager!

Brendan always had an entrepreneurial drive, from starting his own landscaping business in high school (Two Guys and a Rake), to running the Student Business Incubator at the University of Wisconsin. Ultimately this passion lead him to launch his own company after college, Doze - an online mattress retailer, which he spent two years working on with his Co-Founder. 

After stepping down from the day-to-day of his own company, he joined Wodify March 2018. Besides wanting to pet a red panda (how specific can that be!) and hoping for Demi Lovato to reach out, Brendan is a man with a mission: he is looking for the best milkshake in the world! Learn more about him in our Meet the Team!
