USABS Announces Partnership with Sportfied Recruit

Jul 03, 2023

USA Bobsled Skeleton (USABS) announced their partnership with Sportfied Recruit. 


Sportified Recruit is a recruiting firm that caters exclusively to former athletes. The company aims to help industrious and hungry athletes find passion and purpose after the game while enabling select organizations to hire from this elite talent pool.


The company was founded by a husband and wife team, Jed and Maggie Ortmeyer.  Jed played professional hockey for 11 years and is currently the Director of Player Development for the New York Rangers.  Maggie worked in the corporate world before starting a sports marketing business alongside Jed’s hockey career that extended the couples’ collective network into all major sports and beyond.


Sportified Recruit is a resource for individuals looking to turn their innate characteristics and soft skills as an athlete into a gratifying career in the corporate world.  Their employer partners are those who understand and value these attributes and offer a corporate culture that lends well to this type of talent.


Experience levels of their candidates range from fresh out of their respective sport to seasoned professionals, and although they do not focus on a particular industry, many of the opportunities they work with are sales, business development and/or leadership focused.


"Sportified Recruit is thrilled to solidify a formal partnership with USA Bobsled/Skeleton, and we look forward to helping both their recently retired athletes and alumni discover or redirect a fulfilling post-sport career path.  Sportified Recruit has always been committed to working with athlete candidates from a variety of pro and collegiate sports and feels the addition of Bobsled/Skeleton athletes who participated in The Games will be a fantastic way to continue diversifying their ‘roster’ while hopefully leading more of these individuals to their next victory,” shared Maggie, who serves as Owner and Co-Founder of Sportified Recruit.


Sportified Recruit has many existing relationships throughout pro and collegiate sports. Both organizations are excited to add USABS to the list in an effort to help more athletes at the highest levels of competition with their next chapter. 


"Celebrating our newest partnership with Sportified Recruit, USA Bobsled/Skeleton is excited to join forces with a passionate organization that truly understands the power of talent and determination. As we look to expand support to retiring athletes and existing alumni, Sportified Recruit will provide the expertise and connections to provide meaningful opportunities as athletes transition from their athletic careers to their professional endeavors” Aron McGuire, CEO of USABS shared about the partnership.
