Working as an executive leader at a Fortune 100 technology company, Lucas Krump was climbing the corporate ladder, reaping the benefits of a solid paycheck and a stable career. But no matter how much he had, he felt lost, disconnected and empty. He discovered that many men he knew felt the same way and felt a calling to walk away and start again. As CEO and Co-Founder of EVRYMAN, his mission is to enable men to connect with themselves and others through the powers of community, self-awareness and emotional development.
Since launching in 2017, EVRYMAN has supported thousands of men to lead happier, healthier more connected lives via retreats, leadership training, and a global online membership community. EVRYMAN has been featured in the New York Times, Men's Health, The Today Show, GQ, and The Joe Rogan Experience Podcast.
Before focusing on EVRYMAN full-time, Lucas most recently worked in advertising technology in New York City. Prior to that, he spent a decade abroad working in media consulting and publishing. He was responsible for the launch of multiple international media properties including Travel + Leisure Asia and Maxim India.
Lucas grew up in Kansas where he attended Rockhurst, an all-boys Jesuit High School. He holds a BA in Journalism from the University of Kansas and an MBA from UCLA Anderson School of Management.
