We’re sports fans, first and foremost. If there’s a game on TV, the odds are good one of us is watching it. We’re also a collection of writers, designers, creatives and developers that produce editorial content and merchandise. In addition to our Heckler-exclusive content, we work with a variety of athletes and organizations, and have donated more than $20,000 to worthy causes, such as the Charles Tillman Cornerstone Foundation.
Brad Zibung, Principal
Brad is tall enough to be a professional basketball player. He just isn’t one. But he does oversee the business development side of The Heckler, while also contributing to the company’s creative direction. Brad has a wealth of experience in journalism, marketing and communications. A University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh alum, Brad began his career in corporate affairs at Leo Burnett and recently helped grow a well-known startup that was eventually bought by one of the world's largest Internet retailers.
George Ellis, Principal
A Chicago Cubs fan, George knows the price that must be paid for loyalty. In fact, he even wrote a Barnes & Noble sports bestseller about it: The Cubs Fan’s Guide To Happiness. As creative director, George oversees The Heckler’s content and product development. His background is in advertising, and he’s written commercials for brands big and small, including McDonald’s, Allstate, Shiner Beer and Baylor University. He can beat Brad in ping-pong any day of the week and twice on Sunday.
