Stefan Hochfilzer (Founder of ClubXcite)
Name: Stefan H.
Location: San Diego, CA
Title: Founder & President

As the founder of Club Xcite, and co-founder of Xcite Steps Stefan Hochfilzer has dedicated his career to creating opportunities for children and teens to receive opportunities for personal growth, happiness and success. Stefan’s passion for working with children stems from an empathy for the kids he serves. At fifteen, Stefan began teaching tennis, apprenticing under his former coach before setting off on his own. As so many of his clients know, his excitement is infectious and he quickly garnered a stable of clients seeking to enroll their children under him. Just as it had for him, tennis served as a catalyst for Stefan to discover who the children were and who they wanted to become. His youth enabled him to form a fraternal connection that thrives both Xcite programs today. On the strength of his previous success, Stefan launched his first company in 2002, the Inspired Learning Institute, LLC. This program endorsed the coupling of sports instruction and comprehensive mentoring and offered an assortment of athletic opportunities.
Education: Stefan entered the Hass School of Business at the University of California at Berkeley and the Inspired Learning Institute would serve as the antecedent of what would become Club Xcite. Upon graduating from Berkeley he entered the corporate consulting world for a year, then a real estate certificate program, and finally returned to his first passion, working with children. Club Xcite was founded in 2004 with the vision to provide one-on-one in-home academic, social and behavioral services to struggling children. Since then Club Xcite has evolved into a variety of supportive services and programs to families. Today, Stefan and Club Xcite remain unique in the way they serve children and the success they have found. Stefan’s own experiences have taught him that schools lack the resources and the ability to innovate in a way that is necessary to reach every child. Club Xcite, conversely, is fortunate in its ability to customize services to each child’s strengths and weaknesses.
Experience: Piggy backing on the success of Club Xcite!, Stefan in 2007 has founded Xcite Steps, a company dedicated to serving children with autism and other cognitive or developmental disabilities through clinical therapies. This program’s growth and strength have been equal to its sister’s and he continues to find new ways to innovate and improve children’s opportunities.
Hobbies & Skills: Stefan is all about balancing work with fun. Stefan enjoys surfing, yoga, boxing, volleyball, tennis, painting and traveling.
