Founder & CEO

Sean McDade

Proudest accomplishment: starting PeopleMetrics from scratch and growing the company without venture capital.

Inspired by: entrepreneurs who take massive risks to make the world a better place.

Likes: healthy foods, entrepreneurship, traveling for pleasure, the ocean, cities, spinning, running, yoga, spending time with the family, team basketball, learning new things, reading, growing as a person.

Dislikes: smoking, bureaucracy, cold weather, suburbs, driving, repetitive days, traffic, traveling for business, littering, selfish basketball, staying stagnant, coffee, unhealthy foods.

Always playing in his headphones: whatever is currently in the Viral 50 on Spotify.

Favorite thing about Philadelphia: I love the diversity of the neighborhoods in Philadelphia and the incredible restaurants that come with that.

When I'm not working, you can find me: at a spin class at Flywheel, watching (or coaching) a basketball game, spending time with my family or at the beach in the summertime.

What's in your coffee? I have never had a cup of coffee in my life.  I do occasionally drink tea.  But always drink water.

Favorite expressions: 

"Life by the yard is hard; by the inch it's a cinch." 

"Successful people do what unsuccessful people are not willing to do."
