Alan’s career in marketing began client-side with CPG giants Procter & Gamble and Pepsi, where he gained appreciation not only for the value and execution of solid strategies, but for the vast responsibilities clients shoulder. His experience afforded him a skill set that’s paid off big-time, with DNA’s client tenure currently averaging 10 years. Today, Alan is having fun leading DNA’s management team, fostering the development of market-changing ideas and insights. His goal: the creation of experiences that go beyond advertising to solve real business problems. He’s also setting the agency’s vision for growth, expanding talent and capabilities, while fostering a culture of collaboration and breakthrough work. Outside the office, Alan is Board Chair of StolenYouth, an organization working to end child sex trafficking in Washington state.
