About My Business:
Youngest owner of a publicly traded company in history.
Back in high school, Dan Fleyshman can remember a buddy yelling “Who’s your daddy?” on the football field, at parties, and when greeting classmates. The enterprising Fleyshman quickly realized that the popular phrase could someday become a business opportunity. In 1999, he and Moyal began printing t-shirts with the catchy caption. Selling them at school, the first 100 shirts were gone within hours. Following graduation, he and his partner found a manufacturer and began soliciting major retailers to sell their product.
In 2002, a man who had a background in the apparel business agreed to join them as director of development. The elder assisted the young team to successfully launch a Who’s Your Daddy-branded clothing line in Kohl’s and Mervyn’s stores. That deal led to a three-year distribution in Europe. Over the next few years, Who’s Your Daddy grossed more than $15 million.
Fleyshman later decided to launch a flavored energy drink, competing against more than 900 already on the market. His product catapulted to the number seven spot in the industry, so he decided to take Who’s Your Daddy all the way to the stock market. At 23, the decision made him the youngest owner of a publicly traded company in history. Who’s Your Daddy Energy Drink is currently sold in tens of thousands of stores in multiple countries. Fleyshman, for his achievements, has been featured in MAXIM Magazine, and appeared on ABC News & CNN.
Fleyshman began playing poker recreationally in 2005, and in 2006, won the first annual $5,000 CEO Poker Championship at the Palms. He followed that up in 2008 by winning the $10,000 Chipleader Challenge at the Hard Rock Hotel, and the $2,500 Canadian Poker Tour Main Event in 2009.
At 28 years old, Fleyshman is CEO of VictoryPoker.net, and determined to create the coolest poker site in the world. He states, “I believe Victory brings the true essence of the game to the end user.”
With an impressive team of motivated professional poker players and executives, Fleyshman believes Victory is another brand that will surely succeed.
Fleyshman currently resides in Malta.
