An old and dear friend of DRUM! Magazine and longtime music industry veteran, Pat Brown has started a new full-service sales and marketing company. The Brown Group, headquartered in Houston, Texas, will offer consulting services in sales, marketing, market research, graphic design, print/internet advertising, media plans, video, and more. In addition, the company has complete, turnkey printing capability.
Brown, whose background includes seven years at Fender, and 26 years at Pro-Mark, is a former co-director of the Percussion Marketing Council, and past winner of the Percussive Arts Society’s President’s Industry Award.
“While we can handle projects of any size, we are specifically targeting start ups, or other small companies that lack the resources to do these things in-house,” Brown says. “It’s increasingly challenging to get the attention of the customer, but the folks in our organization have a track record of doing just that. And, we can save our clients money doing it.”
