HISTORY

In 2011, our fearless founder, Scott Chastain, AKA Captain Stretch, had an idea. It was a somewhat unusual idea, that centered around fandom, superhero capes and Auburn University. After 8 months of trial and error and mastering the labyrinth of collegiate licensing regulations, Everfan launched with a superhero kit that included a cape, eyemask, power bands and shirt for 5 universities. 

Fast forward a few years and Everfan started getting requests for custom designs and bulk orders. With new opportunities to work with large companies like MTV & Chick-fil-A, as well as build partnerships with nonprofits such as Heart Heroes, CASA and Love Your Melon, Everfan began to evolve. Scott saw the power within his products and the demand from a different audience for customizable Everfan gear. Today, Everfan specializes in a host of playful and customizable products that engage people of all ages!

The Everfan Team

Captain Stretch

Not-so-secret Identitiy: Scott Chastain
Position: CEO (Chief Everfan Officer and Founder)

If Scott were a superhero, his powers would be many: Passion, energy, clarity and imagination, all united by an unwavering determination. Scott is a landscape architect (owner of Chastain Design) by training, designer by interest, and entrepreneur by heart.  In the midst of a persistent economic downturn, Scott rediscovered his imagination, dreaming of a venture that would combine two of his passions: design & superheroes. Thus, Everfan was born.

Scott can still be found drawing up landscapes around his hometown Thomasville in his spare time.

EXCELorator

Not-so-secret Identitiy: Katie Chastain
Position: CFO - Chief Fun Officer

Katie's passions complement those of her husband, Scott. After selling her small town bookstore, The Bookshelf, she joined Everfan to help manage the day-to-day operations and keep the other superheroes under control. Katie and Scott have two daughters, Perry and Reece.

Alektra

Not-so-secret Identitiy: Areka Beckham
Position: Marketing and Sales Manager

Areka will be working with customers to create the cape of their dreams and will be responsible for incoming orders. Being a mother of five, she brings creativity and a passion for fun to the Evercave.

Areka enjoys photography and spending time with her husband, Nick, and their kids Tristin, Charli Sue, Jaden, Jordan and Blake. 

The Maker

Not-so-secret Identitiy: Emily McKenna
Position: Product Developer

Emily brings sewing know-how and creativity to Everfan. She is increasing the ability for cape customization and development of new products in house. With her talents, Everfan is now able to embroider personalized capes. 

Emily loves teaching others to sew and make jewelry. She also enjoys reading and spending time with her husband, Sean, and their two kids Brady and Whitney.

Blitz

Not-so-secret Identitiy: Deyvi Gonzalez
Position: Production Manager
Email:

Deyvi Gonzalez can make and fold some capes – sometimes 100 per hour. (No Speedy Gonzalez jokes here). But his eye for quality is what made him Everfan’s top recruit for Production Manager.

Deyvi enjoys fishing and spending time with his brothers, mother, and Super Girl, Lucy. 

Triple Threat

Not-so-secret Identitiy: Marty Roberts
Position: Production Choreographer

Marty is a production extraordinaire.  A triple threat, if you will.  She sews.  She embroiders. She heat presses.  Perhaps her greatest strength, though, is that she agrees with Everfan's policy to do whatever it takes to bring your imagination to life and to say "no" only when absolutely necessary.

Not only is she a triple threat at Everfan, but also outside.  She is a talented musician and singer as well as an actress (as we discovered at our company retreat).  She also enjoys playing Ultimate Frisbee and soccer competitively.

Don't mess with Triple Threat.
