By the age of twelve, Brian Zapp had visited nearly every continent exploring botanical ingredients with his mother, CEO of a successful ingredient company. The love of business around functional extracts from global sourcing to working with exciting companies had grown. Today, Zapp is a creative director and manages the marketing division at AFS, where he continues to work with his mother, Loretta Zapp (CEO), and brother, Jackson Zapp (VP of Innovation). One unique thing about Brian was his success in the sport of rugby, where between 2008-2016, Brian was an international rugby referee. He still works closely with the rugby community while raising his family near Boulder, Colorado.
