Dave Allen: Brand Management/Principal
A native Detroiter, Dave is big into hardware, whether you’re talking sheet metal or the latest tech.
After completing his M.B.A. at the University of Michigan, Dave spent the next 12 years at Y&R, overseeing some of the most successful launches in Ford history and running many of Y&R’s field offices on the Lincoln-Mercury account. Later, he led the Sony Electronics account for Y&R Irvine. Given his experience in building and running offices, it’s no surprise that we tapped Dave to lead our first-ever field office in California, where he managed the national Hyundai account.
But that was then. In hardware terms, Dave’s had several upgrades over the years. Now based in Dallas, he oversees our Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) relationship, including agency-of-record duties on Ram Trucks and FIAT, and project work on various FCA brands domestically and internationally.
Dave and wife Lisa enjoy golf, travel, and raising their two children, Andrew and Lily.
