David Brown, Jr., is an executive coach and Vice President, Process Excellence and Chief of Staff at Prudential Financial. He has led teams and provided strategic consult to product and service lines that include credit cards, mortgages, facilities maintenance, asset management, individual life insurance and annuities. Despite growing success in his career, a personal tragedy led David to spend time away from corporate America where he penned his first book, Letters for Lucia: 8 Principles for Navigating Adversity, which chronicles the international parental abduction of his 11-month old daughter. The experience of writing of his book sparked a search for deeper meaning on how he could contribute to the success of leaders and organizations through coaching.
David earned his bachelor’s degree in finance from the University of Delaware and a DBA from the Fox School of Business. He completed his Executive MBA at Villanova’s School of Business where he also served as an adjunct professor.
