Emerging Leadership Series Panel Highlight
Gordon Fowler l President & CEO l 3fold Communications
Gordon Fowler will be sharing his insight and experience serving on nonprofit boards and why it can help a rising young professional.
Ten years ago, armed with this central belief (and little else), Gordon opened 3fold Communications in Sacramento. His vision was to create an agency that offered a full breadth of integrated marketing services—outstanding creative, strategic communications, and smart public relations—all working together and interweaving with the strengths and opportunities particular to the Sacramento region.
With years of experience working in advertising agencies in New York and Los Angeles, as well as heading West Coast communications for a Washington DC-based PR agency, he brought together a stellar team that could offer large-firm service with the personal attention of a small-firm environment. Under his leadership, 3fold has grown from a 3-person startup on a shoestring budget to a 16-person, multi-million dollar agency.
Throughout his career, Gordon has always believed connecting with the community—not just knowing who to contact, but being a strong, active participant within a community—is essential to being successful in business. So, in addition to building one of the strongest and most creative teams in the region, he built an agency that included community leadership and service as part of its central mission. Members of the 3fold team currently serve on 25 nonprofit or community boards, and have donated more than $200,000 in pro bono PR, marketing and consulting services to nonprofit and community-based organizations.
Gordon currently serves on the Sacramento Metro Chamber Executive Board as the vice-chair for Marketing/Communication, and the City Year Sacramento Board and chairing the Marketing/PR Committee.
