Chief Marketing Officer
Brock leads all of Circadian’s marketing research, strategy and thought leadership efforts. He is responsible for the planning and messaging that creates positive business results for Circadian's clients. Brock also supervises account management, where he ensures clients understand exactly what the agency is doing and why they’re doing it. He has become well-known for his ability to explain marketing fundamentals and the reasoning behind each of Circadian’s recommendations.
Brock brings more than a decade of marketing and creative experience to Circadian. Over the course of his career, Brock has had the opportunity to develop strategic communications efforts for consumer and business brands like 3M, VISI, DCAdvisors, Piper Jaffray, Skyline Exhibits, School of Rock, Wilson’s Leather, and Sears. In 2011 Brock was recognized as one of the TwinWest Chamber of Commerce’s Emerging Entrepreneurs of the Year.
From 2007 through 2009, Brock served on the Board of Directors for AIGA Minnesota, the professional association for design. In that capacity he oversaw the successful development and implementation of all chapter programming, including DesignCamp®, the largest regional design conference in the country.
Brock is regularly invited to speak on marketing and creative topics and participate in panel discussions on the state of the creative industry. He has spoken to a variety of business groups, professional associations and colleges, including the Better Business Bureau, the Minneapolis Regional Chamber of Commerce, Cardinal Stritch University, AdFed, and Minnesota State University Moorhead. He has also appeared as a panelist for the Minnesota Real Estate Journal, discussing branding and electronic marketing.
Each month Brock writes about marketing, branding and graphic design for Circadian’s blog, the Pulse. He was also one of the original bloggers for FuelYourBranding.com and has been quoted in a number of Twin Cities business publications, including Finance and Commerce and the Minneapolis St. Paul Business Journal, on topics ranging from branding to presentation techniques.
Originally hailing from Washington, D.C., Brock now lives in Minnesota with his wife, Jennifer, and their son, Collin. He holds degrees in both graphic design and marketing. When he's not immersed in developing strategic marketing solutions, Brock can be found brewing beer and delving into life's deep philosophical issues.
