Rick Brown

Vice President of Digital Marketing

Obsessed with computers, technology (and video games!) from a young age, Brian grew up with a love for all things digital. From playing Number Munchers and Oregon Trail on the family 386 PC in the early 90's, to first experiencing the internet by connecting to Prodigy through a 2400 baud modem around that same time, Brian has continued to embrace, learn and experiment with new technologies.

His digital lifestyle turned professional after joining NetTrack Marketing as an intern in 2008.  NetTrack Marketing was a Cleveland-based digital marketing agency specializing in search-engine optimization for B2B industrial manufacturing clients. At NetTrack, Brian held various positions within the company and remained with it through its acquisition by The Karcher Group at the end of 2019. Now, as part of the TKG team post-acquisition, Brian is excited about bringing his unique experience and digital marketing skills to an even more dynamic team.
