Our Team

WolfBrown is a cross-disciplinary team of professional consultants with experience in fundraising, marketing, planning, research, evaluation, program design, arts education and other areas.  Our consultants have had distinguished careers as practitioners prior to becoming consultants.  In those roles and later in their roles as advisors they have counseled hundreds of organizations – large and small – in almost every state and in numerous countries.  Their publications have had impact on a number of fields.  They have developed new methodologies and bodies of work which benefit new clients.

 

In addition to our full-time staff, we maintain ties with a wide range of individuals and firms across the U.S. and internationally, in order to access specialty expertise and create teams that respond to the unique challenges of each assignment.
