John Dougherty

Chief Marketing Officer | Seattle | 206.258.5073

How do I help our clients live a richer life?
As chief marketing officer, my role spans across audience segmentation, automation, branding, digital media, events, messaging, inbound marketing, demand generation, and ROI. I also develop the marketing vision and strategy through projects such as our martech stack. Having spent many years at agencies, I view our business development team and business segments as “clients,” and focus on providing the assets and tools needed for each to accomplish their goals. Together we’re amplifying and enhancing Brighton Jones’ highly-personalized experiences to current and future clients. It’s incredibly gratifying to bring new members into the Brighton Jones community and see them live a richer life through the unique relationship we share with each one.

How do I spend my time outside of Brighton Jones?
Time outside the office is spent with my wife and three spirited kids, typically outdoors either skiing, hiking, swimming, running, or fishing. We also enjoy travel, history, art, concerts, Sounders games, and cooking. We adore Dempsey, our English springer spaniel, named by our kids after both the soccer player Clint Dempsey and actor Patrick Dempsey. My wife started Smooth Transitions of Seattle, which helps individuals and families navigate the challenges of aging and lifestyle change. As a family, we give back as much as possible by volunteering at Ronald McDonald House, March of Dimes, the Assistance League, and serving as a director on various boards.
