Networking Night + Meet The Brand Champions!

Today, consumers increasingly identify and make purchase decisions influenced by the lifestyle promises, values and principles of brands themselves. Behind every great brand is an individual whose job is to create and execute a brand story that resonates with consumers. In today’s world that job changes every day as new platforms, lifestyles and innovation alter the consumer landscape. Come and meet the people that spend their days looking through the lens of the consumer to create breakthrough strategies and content that help their brand win in the marketplace.

David Delcourt – CEO and Chief Flavor Officer, Seed Ranch Flavor Co
I am the Chief of Flavor at Seed Ranch. Food, family, and fitness are my life. I explore the front range by foot and bike and sweat at the gym. My family keeps me honest and driven. When someone tastes Seed Ranch, I watch their expression. It’s a joy to share how we can make their next meal amazing. That’s the core of what we have embarked on…making every day eating exciting again. I have been an entrepreneur for 12 years from the tech space, to renewable energy, to food. My proudest moments are when I hear a customer say how much they love what we’re doing.
