When Rett Clevenger hears the word "mogul" he envisions a backcountry ski run with powder so deep you need a snorkel. Rett is an accomplished mountaineer and will jump at the opportunity to go whitewater kayaking, wind surfing and nearly anything that gets adrenaline flowing. He doesn't wear a business suit and doesn't think of himself as a mogul.
After receiving his B.A. in Marketing from the University of Idaho, Rett found himself managing, building, and marketing web sites within multi-channel environments for Northwest River Supplies and Coldwater Creek. Eight years later, he was recruited by Backcountry.com and moved to Utah to be their online media manager. During his four years there, not only did he build his outdoor gear stash, his team increased revenue 534% from $9.1 million to $58 million - generating a combined total revenue of $88 million. Not bad for a ski junkie from a little town in North Idaho.
At a pinnacle where he could see the blizzard of opportunity, Rett co-founded Steal Network with Jana Francis.
His track record for creating innovation has grabbed the attention of Google and other mountainous companies. Rett is always up for a challenge and develops vertical growth with each project he tackles. As an adventurer, Rett faces opportunities with a tactical aggressiveness, yet he's humble enough to understand the value of collaboration and teamwork.
Rett was recognized as a Finalist for Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year in 2012 and 2013.
Rett lives in Park City, Utah with his wife and three children.
