About Craig Kessler
Before Craig Kessler started a career in business he spent working in consulting and private equity. After marrying his high school girlfriend, he attended Harvard Business School. Several years after graduating, he was offered the chance of a lifetime to help lead a business called Topgolf. At the time, he was thirty-one years old. He was off to the races helping to lead one of the fastest growing sports and entertainment companies in the world.
And along the way, two things happened. He and his wife have three children that are all boys. All of his sons are within four years. He realized early on that he had a lot to learn about raising kids. Second, he developed friendships with remarkable people. Many of them were willing to share tips and tricks about fatherhood. Wherever life and work take him, Craig’s favorite job is and always will be starting and ending each day as a husband and dad.
