Senior Partnership & Development Manager, Philadelphia
Brandon joined PCA as the Partnership Manager for the Philadelphia sales office in 2017. As the Partnership Manager, Brandon is responsible for prospecting, developing and closing partnership opportunities in the Philadelphia metropolitan area. Key to this process is demonstrating the value of PCA programs for youth sport organizations and schools, resulting in an increased PCA partnership base for Philadelphia. In 2019, Brandon added development/fundraising responsibilities, specifically geared towards 3rd Party fundraising for partnerships in under-served areas.
A self-proclaimed “student of the game,” and son of a high school football coach, Brandon gained an early appreciation and respect for the positive and transformative impact of sports. He attended the University of California, Berkeley where he was a four-year starter on the defensive line for the Golden Bears. After his senior year, he joined the Philadelphia Eagles as a 4th round pick of the 1998 NFL draft. He remained a valued member of the Eagles’ starting defensive line for 6 years before being traded to the San Francisco 49ers in 2004, where he remained until the end of the season.
Returning to Philadelphia, he shifted his focus and dedicated his effort to creating positive culture change at the corporate level. Most recently serving as President of Speed Raceway, a family entertainment venue, he managed the Operations, Sales and Marketing teams.
Brandon, his wife Amanda, and their four dogs reside in Lehigh County, PA. A love of world travel, sports, and animal advocacy keep him busy in his spare time. He proudly joins PCA with the hopes of making a difference in the lives of the next generation of athletes and people.
