Altidore, a U.S. Soccer Male Athlete of the Year, and MLS Cup MVP, joins a roster of investors that includes women’s U.S. Open Tennis Champion and Olympian Sloane Stephens, U.S. men’s tennis doubles Grand Slam and ATP record holder and Olympic gold medalist Mike Bryan, U.S. men’s tennis serving record holder and Olympian Sam Querrey, and former President and CEO of Ballast Point and Cutwater Spirits, Jim Buechler. (Jim led those companies to landmark acquisitions by Constellation Brands and Anheuser-Busch, respectively.)
Known for his agility and strong physical presence in the box, Altidore has been competing professionally in the MLS for more than 13 years. He is also one of the most decorated players in the history of the U.S. national team, scoring the third-most goals in its history (42). Throughout his soccer career, Altidore has also devoted time to mentoring youth groups and aspiring young soccer players and has helped underprivileged children across the world through the Jozy Altidore Foundation.
“I find Quantum Energy Squares to be a great source of natural energy on and off the field,” said Altidore. “I now have an energy bar that’s natural, balanced, tastes great, and that fires me up. I’m excited about the product, the team and spreading the word. And this isn’t just words: I’m an investor, too.”
“Like Jozy and U.S. Open tennis champion, Sloane Stephens, Quantum Energy Squares are all about healthy, active living,” says QUANTUM CEO Dan Medvene. “We couldn’t imagine better ambassadors for our company, and we look forward to having their energy and enthusiasm to help introduce more people to QUANTUM, everyone from Olympic-caliber athletes who want to improve performance to everyday people who just need a healthy, energizing snack.”
