Damien Kennedy completed an Undergraduate and Masters in Sports Physiology and Human Performance at Brunel University. Damien competed for the Universities Basketball team where he met Greg Duggan, now fellow Co-founder of Wheyhey!
Post-university Damien coached at the Great Britain Institute for Basketball, as part of the pre-Olympics programme and at the same time played for Ireland’s international basketball team. With a background in Sport, Nutrition and Physiology combined with close family links to diabetes and frustration with the food industries lies the pair wanted more.
Armed with an idea and fueled with determination, the pair worked three jobs, sold off their valuables and borrowed money from family and friends to set up Wheyhey.
