“I am very excited about our partnership with Maverik,” said Rick Sowell, the head coach for the Stony Brook University men’s lacrosse team. “Maverik is an up-and-coming company and definitely on the move. There are many things that intrigue me about Maverik. But, the one thing more than anything else that stood out to me was the quality of the people who work and run the company. Additionally, besides having great products Maverik goes above and beyond to service their clients. I am very much looking forward to a great working relationship between Stony Brook and Maverik.”
