Kelly Brown Bio - Sanctuary - A Digital Marketing Group

Kelly Brown

CEO

Working with clients to help them grow their business. Seeing the results of a really well executed digital marketing campaign. Learning what works -- and what doesn't. Better yet, I love learning from our team of really smart, really creative digital marketing experts. I'm amazed every day by the great work, great thought, and mountains of energy coming generated by our team. Working with great people is the best part of my job.

Kelly Brown has 25+ years of experience leading entrepreneurial organizations. As Managing Partner, Kelly has had the opportunity to serve a leadership role in every functional division of the organization spanning business strategy and development, marketing, finance, human resources, customer service, fulfillment, information technology and publishing production. He’s driven by, and constantly steers our efforts towards, working with clients to help grow their businesses. He loves seeing the results of a really well-executed digital marketing campaign, learning what works and what doesn’t along the way.

Kelly joined Sanctuary after serving 10 years as the Chief Operating Officer and Marketing Director of Communication Resources, Inc, and working with a myriad of other start-ups and local initiatives. Kelly is also a CPA. While he no longer practices public accounting and feigns ignorance when asked for tax advice, he does know his debits from his credits and is a whiz when it comes to P&Ls and spreadsheet analysis.

While not boring readers to tears with his self aggrandizing anecdotes of past accomplishments, Kelly loves to read, hang with his dogs, Oscar and Bubba, play with his many cliche’d Star Wars ‘collectibles’ and ‘run’ half-marathons at an embarrassingly slow rate of 11-12 min miles. Kelly’s married to a wonderful woman, Heidi, who puts up with all this and is the proud step-father of Morgan, who leads our copywriting department.

He lives in North Canton with his wife, Heidi, and their dogs, Oscar and Bubba.

Strengths: Strategic | Significance | Individualization | Relator | Input

Fun Facts: Dogs. Travel. Queso.
Fave Quote: “The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” —Teddy Roosevelt.
