You Are Who We Are
The faces and places that have built Pursuit.
- Pursuit Team
Jeni Britton Bauer
No modern Ohio entrepreneur has inspired Pursuit more than Jeni Britton Bauer. The passion and creativity that took Jeni’s from a stall at the North Market to a national force inspires us to build Pursuit with big ambitions, and we’re fortunate to have a collaborator and mentor like Jeni to help us along the way.
Pursuit partnered with future gold medalists, Team Shuster, before PyeongChang. Then we sat back and cheered through all hours of the night for our friends John Shuster, Tyler George, & John Landsteiner (seen in this clip) along with teammates Matt Hamilton, Joe Polo, & Coach Phill Drobnick.
Lalas’s story is inspiring and his smile is infectious. From Ghana to the University of Dayton to Crew SC, Lalas inspires many back home and in Ohio. He was recently featured in an ‘In Pursuit’ video where he talked about his gratitude for opportunities and the mentoring role he hopes to play for young people in Ghana.
Pursuit has no bigger fans than the DeMars Family. There’s never been any doubt or skepticism about Pursuit from Nate’s family from day one—only unconditional support and optimism. We could not be here today without them and this clip from Melonia & Nate’s recent wedding seemed fitting.
A turning point for Pursuit was our first ‘In Pursuit’ concert when Nate’s favorite band, critically-acclaimed Duluth slow-core legends, LOW, performed the very first ‘In Pursuit’ concert. Alan, Mimi, and Steve have been great friends of Pursuit, and that concert inspired the series that continues to this day.
Nancy and her team of skilled tailors are a key component of the customer service level our customers expect from us. As we grow, we want Pursuit to maintain the feel of a family business, and that’s why we love working with Nancy & David, and getting to know their amazing young daughter Christina.
Over-the-Rhine was a natural choice for Pursuit’s expansion. The amazing entrepreneurial energy and the striking architectural history of the neighborhood makes it a place unlike any we’ve seen and a neighborhood we had to join. Many emerging retailers & restaurants call Vine Street home.
Trampled by Turtles
One of our favorite days was when internationally beloved band Trampled by Turtles performed for ‘In Pursuit’. We’re humbled when people at the pinnacle of their field are excited to work with us, and we were thrilled to suit Dave Simonett, Dave Carroll, Ryan, Erik, Tim, & Eamonn.
