Brent joined Fleet Feet in 2017 and quickly made an impact by unifying the vendor management and marketing departments, cementing processes, roles, and timelines in place for each, and driving Fleet Feet’s most significant branding refresh to date.
Brent did the same in previous roles at Nathan, where he worked as head of marketing from 2012 to 2017. At Nathan, he drove development and execution of programs to reposition “accessories” into “essentials.” At adidas America, he served as director of marketing and retail marketing, where he was instrumental in the rollout and execution of both the Performance and Originals strategies.
Brent started his career on the retail floor at Foot Locker in Dallas, Texas, and went through the brand's management-training program to become a store manager shortly thereafter (ask him about the week he spent sleeping in his store) before eventually working his way up to vice president of global marketing.
A life-long runner who first got the bug for running in high school after placing second at districts in the 3200 meters (less than three weeks after he joined the team), Brent has since crossed the finish lines at the Marine Corps, New York City, and Grandma’s marathons, as well as the Hyner Trail Challenge and the Way Too Cool 50k. Brent earned his Bachelor of Science degree in advertising from the University of Texas (hook ‘em Horns!). He and his wife, Rebecca, have two children: a son, Garrett, a daughter, Tyler, and a trail-loving dog, Nacho.
