Biography

Brent is a marketing communications professional whose career is built upon hard work, practical thinking and... most importantly, an education in the Fine Arts. Successful marketing, like successful art, influences the audience to behave in the the way you intend.

Brent has led several large-scale rebranding projects, dozens of product and service launch initiatives, technology integrations, and a wide variety of other marketing programs.

This is what Brent's really good at:
• Guiding companies through transformational change, especially building and reinventing brands
• Making complex topics simple to understand
• Building high performing teams that drive B2B marketing success while still keeping the end-user at the heart of all strategy
• Driving content marketing and consumer education programs

Brent started in marketing as a graphic designer so he knows how to build a brand from the outside in, starting with the customer.
