Bryan Thomas brings more than 15 years of experience – both in-house and on the agency side – working for brands such as HP, Oracle and Sony in the US, Singapore and France.

Prior to joining Allison+Partners, Bryan led worldwide corporate communications at Intel-subsidiary Wind River. There, his primary responsibilities were program strategy and development for external and internal communications, including corporate messaging, social media and crisis communications. He also managed the company’s PR agency relationships on a global scale.

What’s the most interesting thing that you do every day?

 Asking my kids about their day. It’s the answers – or, shall I say creative storytelling – that are most interesting.

What book has had the most impact on you?

Travels by Michael Crichton. I read it on the plane en route to Singapore as I embarked on my own journey of living and working abroad. The timing and relevance made this book especially memorable. 

What was the best advice you ever received?

Actually, it was a quote: “Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it”. I try to live by this on a daily basis.

What do you love about your job?

Each day presents itself with a new set of experiences, opportunities and challenges.
