The HUMANco Team

Human kinetic specialists dedicated to empowering our customers

Our team consists of human kinetics specialists who are passionate about designing products to help the human body feel and perform better.

But we didn’t just want to create a brand to sell clothing and products to people. We wanted to create a brand that empowered every person connected to the brand. The employees, the customers, and the people we help.

President, HumanCo

Mr. Mark McColman BKin

After achieving his degree in Kinesiology/Human Kinetics, he went on to start, operate and expand into Canada’s largest independently owned footwear orthotics and bracing company. By applying over thirty years of experience and assessing over a quarter million feet he brings his experience assessing, designing, and manufacturing custom insoles/orthotics to this product.

HumanCo started because we wanted to make products that help people feel and perform better while also enabling them to make the world a better place.
