Founder and Chair

Alan Brown

Alan’s career in marketing began client-side at Procter & Gamble, followed by Pepsi-
Cola where he gained an appreciation not only for the value of solid strategy, but for the
insane level of responsibility clients shoulder. As our Founder and Chair, this
empathy is something Alan brings to work every day, which might explain why DNA’s
client tenure currently averages 10 years.

In addition to serving as executive sponsor for some of our largest clients, Alan leads
DNA’s board and the company’s long term vision and strategic growth initiatives,
including enhancement of our capabilities, geographic expansion and growing our
national brand.

Alan has been a long-time advocate in DEI, serving as an inaugural member of CEO
Action for Diversity and Inclusion. In 2017, Alan received the Puget Sound Journal’s
Outstanding Voice recognition for his leadership on LGBTQ+ issues in the business
community. Outside of work, Alan enjoys serving on the board of StolenYouth, an
organization working to end child sex trafficking in Washington state.
