About DRIVEN Global
It all began when Robert L. Johnson, the founder of Black Entertainment Television and America’s first African- American billionaire, introduced the two self-made millionaires Mark Thierry and Greshaun Fulgham. What resulted from this pairing, not only is an inspiring business partnership, but an incredibly strong friendship. Mark Thierry is an award winning entrepreneur from Texas with a successful career in sales, medical diagnostics and federal contracting. Greshaun Fulgham, from Washington DC, is international financier and real estate mogul. Opposites attract, yet their synergy is contagious.
Both Thierry and Fulgham want to de-mystify the perception of black men, to show the world, that with hard work, drive and intellect, African-American men can succeed, be dedicated fathers and husbands, collaborate and build successful partnerships, uplift their communities and change the world. With DRIVEN Global, change comes with one golf club and wine glass at a time. Their mutual core values of family, diligence, sacrifice, social responsibility and sustainable leadership are evident in all aspects of DRIVEN Global. For the partners, it’s all about dreaming big. Thierry stated: “The Dream involves the awareness that everyone has more to this life that they can strive for. The Dream that a golf club, or anything for that matter, can be a metaphor for someone making the best of themselves.”
The launch of DRIVEN Golf is the first minority-owned golf brand dedicated to inspiring first-time golfers of color, and urban socialites, to become acquainted with the game. Destiny Moscato, their exquisite American Sparkling Moscato, of Red Styxx Beverage, is also a subsidiary of DRIVEN Global. The Destiny Moscato launch took place this past October 2-4, 2014, in Houston, Texas.
The fearless, collaborative drive of Mark Thierry and Greshaun Fulgham is the foundation of DRIVEN Global’s, multi-platform taste making brands. The two best friends, brought together by the visionary Robert Johnson, plan to follow in their mentors footsteps. “Our goal is to build a billion dollar business,” states Thierry. “We are starting a new legacy.” They have the perfect tagline...”Are you driven?” For more information check out drivengroupllc.com, driven-golf.com and DestinyMoscato.com.
