Chief Executive Officer
7545 days at Sundog
At the heart of every winning team is a great coach. At Sundog, that’s Brent – a big-picture thinker with a humble heart. In 1995, he started the company, and he’s been guiding our vision and values ever since.
Even after transforming Sundog from a two-man startup to a top company on the Inc. 5000 list and Ad Age’s Best Places to Work, Brent says he’s most proud of marrying his wife, Jo, and raising their three kids. More proof that values start at the top.
