While his younger brother Joel went on to pursue this PhD in Kinesiology, Joshua decided to acquire both his Doctor of Law and MBA degrees from Northwestern University School of Law and Kellogg School of Management. Since the completion of these uniquely different higher education experiences, the Seedman brothers have leveraged their unique backgrounds to build AHP into its current global status.

Joshua Seedman spends roughly half of his work hours collaborating with Joel to grow the business, ensuring operational excellence in every facet of the business. He spends the other half of his working time as the chairman of Performance Neuroeconomics Ideation (PNI), a management consulting firm that specializes in global transformations and turnarounds.
