Founded in 2009 by Kevin Dahl and Brad Mullins, NexGoal International LLC serves as a strategic talent acquisition partner for businesses seeking competitive, driven talent that many former athletes possess. The core traits our athlete-candidates display give hiring managers a more predictive view of future performance.
“We began franchising NexGoal as a way to help athletes by creating a network of athletes in offices around North America,” said co-founder Kevin Dahl, a 14-year professional hockey player. Our management team is comprised of former collegiate and professional athletes who clearly understand the challenges which athletes face as they make their transition from sports.
“Our processes, database technologies, and training, along with our great ongoing support of our franchises, ensures a solid future for our team,” added co-founder Brad Mullins.
In March 2012, NexGoal signed its first franchise, NexGoal JRV Michigan, LLC, located in the Metro Detroit area. Owned by Dr. Jack Vivian, the founder and first commissioner of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA), he has built a legacy with his expertise in sport facility development and management.
“I am excited about the opportunity to continue my lifelong efforts of placing former university and professional athletes in career positions,” Vivian said. “Kevin and Brad have developed a detailed, easy-to-operate, turnkey method that matches the career aspirations and skill sets with the employer needs.”
