About TSG Fort Worth Editor Leigh Brown:
A lifelong Texan, Leigh Brown was born and raised in Tyler, Texas—aka The Rose Capital of the World. She attended the University of Texas at Austin, and during her time in the area she was introduced to the charm (and impact) that local businesses can have on a place.
Upon graduation, Leigh moved to New York City and began her career in national advertising sales with the Network of City Business Journals, an opportunity that provided an excellent foundation for a young professional. Just before the fall of 2001, Leigh returned to Austin to work for CBS Television as an Account Executive, where she worked with top advertising agencies as well as local small businesses.
In 2005, Leigh was offered a position with a division of Host Communications (The Longhorn Sports Network) that combined two of Leigh’s favorite things, The University of Texas and a career in advertising. There, she managed and developed partnerships with corporate sponsors and countless local Austin businesses that generated over $1.5 million for the University of Texas. After being recruited to work for AvreaFoster, a boutique brand and design firm, Leigh moved to Dallas in 2007, where she collaborated with creative staff to create comprehensive marketing plans. Leigh’s passion for developing “hands-on” creative marketing solutions with small businesses led her to D Magazine Partners in 2008, where she spent the next 8 years developing ideas and marketing programs for clients.
Leigh and her husband, Wynn, had long planned to raise their family in Fort Worth, and they moved to the city just after their son, Bates, was born in December 2014.
Having always been an admirer of The Scout Guide and its mission to promote all things local in a beautiful and thoughtful way, Leigh was absolutely thrilled to begin a new chapter as Editor of The Scout Guide Fort Worth. She has loved meeting all the talented artists, artisans, entrepreneurs, and visionaries that make Fort Worth so extraordinary, not only as a dynamic community, but as a fantastic destination as well.
