Alan is now in his tenth year of volunteer hockey coaching with the Kelowna Minor Hockey Association. Previously, he enjoyed a 12-year professional hockey playing career ranging from the American Hockey League to Europe. He received his BA in Economics from Colorado College, while attending on a NCAA Div. 1 full hockey scholarship.
His business endeavors range from real estate development to private equity financings where Alan was the Managing Partner at Westvine Capital and the VP of Business Development at Stone Tower Financial Solutions. In 2013 Alan founded ProSmart Sports Development Inc. alongside Ty Summach.
“Early in 2013 I pressed ‘GO’ on a project I have been working on behind the scenes for over 2 years. ProSmart Sports is a BC based tech company focused on online sports education. ProSmart was founded on the simple belief that all grassroots members of minor sports should have equal access to professional education of the fundamentals of their sport and that developing innovative technology could achieve that.”
“Immediately, I found out that many key individuals share the same vision, and together we have been making huge strides in the development of our young company.”
