At the Brandcenter, Allison Duffee isn’t just a professor. With more than 20 years of work in advertising, brand marketing, and business development, Allison is more like a career coach for our students. She loves working with individuals who are at a transition point in their careers, helping them get “unstuck” and discover new ways to move forward.

A “Possibility Thinker” and experienced leader of high-performing teams, Allison is the Principal Consultant at Capco.  Prior to Capco, she was the Director of Communications Strategy at CarLotz, spent 14 years at Capital One, and held several positions with The Martin Agency.

Allison’s impactful coaching doesn’t stop at the Brandcenter—she enjoys coaching herself for a variety of running races throughout the year, including the Richmond Monument Ave 10k and New England Ragnar Relay.

Allison Duffee has a bachelor’s from Virginia Tech in Marketing Management, a master’s from the Brandcenter (Strategy, 2001), and a Certificate in Evidence Based Coaching from Fielding University.
