Originally from Central Texas, Derek Newman studied Sport Management at The University of Texas at Austin. He went on to complete his Masters in Sport Management at Baylor University. Derek loves to help and connect with people, so his first career opportunity as Wellness Coordinator for the City of Temple, Texas was a perfect fit. It allowed him to build relationships with over 1,000 employees, while helping them with all aspects of wellness.
Derek left this job to start his own Equity Trading Company, where he still trades and teaches others how to navigate the markets. Derek and his wife, Dominique, also have a healthy meal prep company that serves the local Waco area. RevLocal will be a great opportunity to relate to small business owners — as he himself is one as well.
As a former collegiate tennis player, Derek is extremely competitive. He loves to play all sports, with Golf being his current favorite. Derek cannot wait to get on the course with his 13-month old son, Grayson.
