Brandon’s work has spanned finance, politics, natural foods, and entertainment. After graduating from Yale with a degree in Political Science, Brandon worked as an analyst for Barclays in New York before deciding to follow his passion for politics. He became involved in President Obama’s reelection campaign in 2012 by taking a job in the Chicago headquarters on the Advance desk, which planned all of the logistics for hundreds of campaign events, concerts and rallies, engaging artists from Bruce Springsteen to Jay-Z. He continued this work at the White House and First Lady’s Office in the Obama Administration, producing events such as the first College Signing Day in Detroit, a national initiative that Michelle Obama continues to promote and participate in annually. He has worked as a consultant with the Hillary and Bernie presidential campaigns, and as an advisor, strategist, and fundraiser for other candidates at all levels of government.
Brandon was a member of the founding team of Birch Benders, a natural food brand that started as his college roommate’s idea and was recently acquired. In 2018, Brandon began working in ICM’s political division, representing and servicing clients and projects in the politics, advocacy, and activism space. In early 2020, he founded Agenda Management and Production with a roster of talent and projects that seek to generate more equity, representation, and minority ownership in the entertainment business. Brandon plays piano and is an avid tennis player and yogi. He played rugby at Yale.
