As the Chief Big Belly, it is Logan’s responsibility to pay for company dinners and to motivate the team with inspirational quotes worthy enough to be printed on matching t-shirts. Previously, Logan was the Director of New Business at Redbox after successfully leading the company's initiative to test and rollout video game rentals. Since then, Logan has spent the past 7 years in startups and he's developed a passion for helping small businesses achieve their goals. Logan will have succeeded in his efforts when he finally owns the San Francisco 49ers. He admits to wanting to shave his barber's beard; fortunately, he's created a product, Belly, which allows him to do so.
