KEY STAFF + FOUNDERS:

Nick Ryan – CEO  & Co-Founder

Nick Ryan began bouncing over a decade ago and helped to pioneer the sport of Xpogo.  Along with a core team of founders, Nick invented many of the tricks still seen in the sport today.  Nick was on of the top Xpogo athletes through the mid-2000’s, after which point he decided to enter into the business side of the sport.  Coming from a background that includes a bachelors at Carnegie Mellon University and professional event production work for companies in New York City, Nick helped incorporate Xpogo LLC in 2010, as a vehicle to bring cohesion to the sport’s growth.  Today, Nick is the CEO of Xpogo LLC and, along with his partners, manages the global development of the sport and lifestyle of Xpogo.

Nick McClintock – Chief Creative Officer & Co-Founder

For over 15 years, Nick McClintock has shaped the identity of the sport of Xpogo both by laying the foundations for a large number of the sport’s signature tricks, and by setting the standard for the visual representation of the sport through his design, and video production work.  Nick’s vision for the Xpogo brand has been the rudder for the development of the sport since its inception and through every major step it has taken in the process of entering mainstream culture.  With a bachelors from Renssealaer Polytechnic Institute and a wealth of experience from film and design projects across the globe, Nick sits at the helm of all Creative decisions inside the company today as its Chief Creative Officer.  However, Nick still finds time to bounce regularly, appearing frequently in Xpogo films projects and at live events the company produces.
