Kendall Hurns is somebody that does it all. The creative's first official foray into the sports universe was representing newly-retired four-time NBA champion Andre Iguodala. Now Hurns blends together the dynamic worlds of art, sports, and fashion all together as the founder of The Arte Haus—a company that tackles a multitude of initiatives including building innovative artist collaborations, and offering consulting services to artists along with providing management services. Before all of that, however, Hurns was a member of the McDonald's squad, having worked at the company in his teens. Tons of very successful individuals in all fields are McDonald's alumni members, which has led to the launch of the company's new initiative called “1 in 8.”
What is “1 in 8" exactly? Well, it's a program that brings together both the past and current McDonald's crew members to create a network of expansion and opportunities—based on the statistic that a whopping 1 in 8 Americans have worked at the Golden Arches. Members of the 1 in 8 will have access to exclusive programming, which includes mentorships with notable alums, reunions with former teammates and more. One of those "Elite 8" members is indeed Kendall Hurns, whom we caught up with recently to chat more about his career journey.
