Quantum Hockey Agency saw the light of day on February 27, 2019. Joachim Hånberg, our founder, had been planning for months, and was conducting some pre-work around the upcoming organization. The company officially came into existence on February 27th, 2019 and was created as a partnership with the co-founders: Joachim Hånberg & Brandyn Garth. The agency had three players (Mark MacKinnon, Marselis Subban, and Dan Stollery) to start with. Joachim and Brandyn were former teammates to these players.

The Journey Begins

On February, the 27, Quantum Hockey Agency saw the light of day. Joachim Hanberg had for a year visualized a potential start of the agency. With months of planning, research, and pre-work, it became true on this day along with the Co-Founder Brandyn Garth. The agency started with three players (Mark MacKinnon, Marselis Subban and Dan Stollery) to start with. Both Joachim and Brandyn were former teammates to these players.
A humble beginning, with only three clients and only two persons in the organization. From this day the development of things was fast paced.
