Director of Business Development
Jan began playing tennis at 4 and has been involved in high performance tennis since he was 10. After a successful junior career, Jan went on to play college tennis for Wright State University where he achieved a NCAA Division I Doubles ranking as well as being awarded WSU Men's Tennis Team MVP twice (2009 and 2011) and First Team All-Horizon League honours.
After obtaining his B.A. at WSU, Jan went on to coaching tennis full-time at the Ontario Racquet Club where he was the travelling coach for Eli Ogilvy, who obtained a career high of 280 in the ITF Junior World Rankings. While coaching at ORC, Jan also began working with Adriano and Denis Shapovalov as a hitting partner. After 2 years of coaching, Jan made the decision to go to law school with the intention of working in tennis full-time after graduation, specializing in the career management of players as they navigate the world of professional tennis.
In 2017, Jan graduated with Honours from Quinnipiac University School of Law and is currently a barred attorney in New York. Since graduating from law school, Jan has travelled with Denis and advised him and his mother, Tessa, on various aspects of the law. In 2019, Jan also began working for a NYC-based sports agency, focusing on the ATP and WTA Tours. As part of that job, Jan handled a wide range of tasks ranging from legal to day-to-day management of professional players, such as applying for visas, researching and advising on travel restrictions, reviewing contracts, recruiting junior players, and conducting sponsorship negotiations. In between obtaining these diverse tennis-related experiences, Jan has continued playing tennis as both a hitting partner for Denis on the road and more recently as part of the Mayfair Toronto Pro-League.
