Zac Upchurch is an business builder, writer, and avid thrill seeker. Zac is constantly searching for the next thrill. Having run with the bulls in Arizona (twice), completed Tough Mudder (twice), and skydived, he is well-versed in these matters.
Zac started his career in Arizona politics working as the speechwriter for the State’s Attorney General. He quickly progressed to campaigns and political consulting, and was an integral part of city, state, and Congressional campaigns. His work in politics resulted in an award from the State of Arizona for Outstanding Service to the State. Wanting to see how his experiences in running successful campaigns translated to the private sector, Zac moved to Boston, Massachusetts where he worked in a strategy and growth role for a global corporation. His success at that company led Zac to New York City where he is helping founders scale their businesses. Outside of work, Zac is developing his own business and investing.
Zac is most passionate about what makes people and companies successful, and is devoting his life to helping the two succeed together.
Zac Upchurch founded ZUpchurch after being inspired by Richard Branson’s quote, “Screw it, let’s do it.” Having compiled a newsletter for co-workers who relied on these as a way to get inspired and further their career goals, Zac realized there was a need for a form of media that lead with quality rather than quantity. Recognizing those who are the game changers in our world do not have the time to sift through laborious articles to arrive on one piece of insight, Zac created ZUpchurch – a site geared for the busy ones. The people who are changing the world.
