Alan M. Powell
Chairman & CEO
A Business Revenue Revolutionary For Arizona & America
With due respect there’s another big man on campus of corporate America.
Gulf War Veteran. Serial Entrepreneur. An African-American who rides Harley Davidsons at Sturgis, goes to X-Games in Aspen, and deep sea’s fishes in Cabo with former Vice President Dan Quayle and NHL Hall of Famer, Jeremy Roenick.
Meet Alan M. Powell, widely recognized as a leading business consultant who turns challenges into opportunities, and opportunities into big gains.
There may be no better Rolodex in America. He aligns people with the right group to form powerful, innovative partnerships. As one of the nation’s preeminent authorities on multi-cultural branding, Powell connects people across industries, cultures and generations. Alan M. Powell helps develop, grow and convert brands into profit from activation, opening up new segments, licensing, strategic partnerships and capital formation.
Powell, recognized by his friends as “AP,” is known for taking the status quo and asking what is next. How can this be improved?
For example, NASCAR is not exactly known as a sport deeply followed by the Multi-Cultural community. Yet, Powell represents Phoenix International Raceway, home to Arizona’s two NASCAR races. Why? To create non-traditional business velocity within the sport of NASCAR.
