About Mana Brand

MANA BRAND

THIS IS THE
POWER OF MANA

Mana is a potent concept in the Polynesian and Maori cultures. It is honour, respect, reputation, and power conferred through excellence of service and association.

It is our philosophy reflected in all we do as an organisation:

Client-focused, premium, and effective delivery of high-end and high-performance outcomes unlike anyone else.

From our founders and team who live these values to the clients we represent and the quality of service we provide them, it underpins what we do as MANA Group.

Circle Icon
The MANA Sports and Entertainment Group was launched by Chris McCormack and Wojciech Kruczyński in 2018 through the merging of two logistically diverse companies in the sport and entertainment space.

By uniting from two differing fields, the merger expanded the range of services and networks on offer to clients. The partnership was rapidly successful and focused primarily on team and league development, media production and content creation, sponsorship activation and acquisition, and event execution. Mana Group has continued to grow, now with multiple global offices, a highly experienced team and many exciting client projects in the works.
