S. Brian Smith

Values-Based Leadership


Irreverent Strategist 

Marketing Misfit

Serial Founder

C-Suite Changemaker

I don’t play by corporate rules. I’m rough around the edges that corporate America typically rubs to a fine sheen. I play by my rules.


Guided by my values, my leadership style fundamentally impacts the trajectory of every organization I’m involved with. During my 15+ years of entrepreneurship, I’ve sharpened my ability to cut through bullshit and deliver results. I don’t fit into boxes. I build them.

I’m trusted by founders and C-suites for my corporate strategy, unique insight into how human behavior impacts business decisions, executive coaching, outside-the-box marketing strategies, deal structuring, and delivering results. My entrepreneurial career has spanned retail, digital marketing, experiential marketing, business services, and commercial real estate. 


If your organization needs some rocket fuel, let’s talk.
