In explaining his initial interest in Nuun, Mr. Reay explained, â€œthere is a growing wave of awareness on the importance of daily hydration and the negative impact of excess sugars in the typical diet. Nuun was developed as a no-sugar alternative to traditional sports drinks. You don’t have to be a hard core athlete to benefit from increased hydration and electrolytes.â€ Mason holds a BS in Industrial Engineering from Northwestern University and an MBA in Finance and Business Economics from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
