About Morgan Brown
Morgan Brown is a growth product manager at Facebook and a startup marketing veteran with more than 15 years helping early stage companies find traction and breakout growth. With his MBA from the startup school of hard knocks, and a passion for uncovering what makes some companies grow and others fizzle, Morgan puts his expertise in digital marketing to work for businesses of all kinds. When he’s not helping companies grow, he loves to spend time with his wife, Erika, and kids, Banks (10) and Audrey Grace (9), read, travel and cheer for the New York Mets.
Morgan grew up in Avon, Connecticut, with a fascination both with computers, his first a Tandy TRS-80 when he was 8, and marine life, which led him to leave Connecticut after high school to attend UC-Santa Barbara to study Zoology. With the rise of the Internet, computers won out when Morgan took his first job at a startup in 1999 at SalesMountain.com, from there he worked at a digital marketing agency, honing his marketing skills on key accounts, and then moving to the startup world again to grow venture backed startups such as TurnHere and ScoreBig. Prior to Inman, Morgan held interim growth lead roles with Y-Combinator backed TrueVault, GrowthHackers.com, Qualaroo, and the startup accelerator, Science. Morgan writes regularly at morganbrown.co and Twitter at twitter.com/morganb. His latest fascination is Snapchat, where he shares growth insights at snapchat.com/add/morganb180. Morgan resides in Laguna Niguel, California with his family and their dogs, Holly and Dixie.
