Our Leadership

Hudl was founded by David Graff, Brian Kaiser and John Wirtz when the three were students at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s Jeffrey S. Raikes School of Computer Science and Management.

As a graduate assistant working with the Nebraska football team, David saw firsthand how paper-heavy and time-intensive it was to distribute playbooks and game film. He teamed up with his neighbors across the hall – John and Brian – to create the first version of Hudl.

Today, the three continue to lead the company alongside a diverse and ambitious leadership team that’s still growing. As a company, Hudl prides itself on trust and transparency at every level, with this team providing a clear vision for the future.
