The Mann Group Hires Brett A McCall, Executive Director for TEDxAsheville, to oversee Mann University for the Bike, Run and Outdoor Industry


Asheville, NC – The Mann Group announced today that Brett A McCall has taken the role of Business Development Director and will be overseeing Mann University for the Bike, Run, and Outdoor Industry. Mann University has designed a unique and innovative approach to specialty retail leadership development and you will see why we chose Brett for this role.

Brett comes from the Republic of Texas but now calls Black Mountain, North Carolina his home. When he is not obsessing over building new relationships that will change the face of retail, he can be found planning new events, playing competitive video games, scaling a mountain with his pet polar bear, spending hours finding new music, or chasing plastic (aka playing Ultimate Frisbee).

 With a Bachelor’s Degree in Community Leadership that highlights over 42 hours of self-directed study, Brett is adept at designing game-changing strategies. His roots in leadership development go back to the late 90’s when he served his time as an Outward Bound instructor. He works at the intersection between youth and elders, actors and audience, boards and consumers… right in the middle, where he has always been

“Brett is a great addition to The Mann Group team. His ability to connect with people at the level it takes to break down the walls so that individuals can learn is an incredible talent.” Dan Mann, President.
