Brandon is a hands-on learner who climbed into his current role after previous responsibilities in Database Management, Paid Media Strategy, Measurement and Reporting, and Project Management – all during his tenure with Three Deep.

Director, Quality Assurance
Polished and Precise. Ensuring everything we do is flawless.
John is a master of quality, efficiency and improvement. He puts his skills to use on both agency projects and internal processes. With 17-years of Business Analyst and Quality Assurance experience, John quickly analyzes situations and corrects course when things are awry. He first joined Three Deep as a contract consultant and swore he’d never have a “real job” again. Fortunately for him (and us), Three Deep shattered his perception of what a “real job” was by valuing its employees and providing endless opportunities in a growing and thriving company - the rest is history.
When he’s not working from his camouflage office chair, you’ll find John in the hunting field, fishing, camping, downhill skiing, flipping through his 80’s and 90’s vinyl collection to relive his glory days as DJ, or on frequent trips to the motherland - which for him is The Great State of Texas. Giddy Up, Y’all!

PRESIDENT-CEO & CO-FOUNDER
Digital measurement zealot and recovering CPA. In a good way.
Dave takes pride in starting a marketing consulting company that included both Strategy and Technology before either were cool. Along with Dan Derosier, Dave founded Three Deep in 2003. He leads the charge with an insane interest in the wildly variable, yet strangely predictive, psychology of why people buy – backed by a fascination (and knack) for measurement systems that guide the needle in digital marketing.
Dave is quick to point out that his experience gives him the perspective to identify the marketing strategies and executions that will work, and the humility to know that you need an excellent team to deliver on those results. After hours, Dave’s MN Wild hockey obsession is, in his words “a complete alter ego dedicated to this crazy passion that sometimes embarrasses me, but what can I say?” Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
