Bio

Donovan Moore has been actively involved in the creative marketing of products and people for most of his adult life.  With a widely diverse background in public relations, sales, and brand management, he has over 30 years experience in marketing and public relations.  A  degree in business from  The University of Southern California (USC) Marshall school of Business, ( ranked in the top 10 of business schools in the country)  adds to his resume.  He began his career in Los Angeles CA with the firm Professional Consulting Management, a political public relations company headed by Michael Reagan, son of future President Ronald Reagan.  There he worked on several election campaigns, the most notable being the the mayoral race for the city of Los Angeles, against Tom Bradley.  This imporatant political campaign  would later become a case political /marketing study and coin the term, bradley effect.  He then began taking on clients in the entertainment industry, honing his public relations and promotion skills by implementing pr campaigns for numerous Hollywood bands during the rise of the LA Sound in the mid 80′s.  It was during this time that he discovered and negotiated the record contract for the soon to be groundbreaking band Stryper, becoming their personal manager.  The band would go on to sell more than 10 million records worldwide.  He was then hired by WCA, a west coast talent agency known for it’s representation of mostly middle of the road Christian celebrity artists and speakers such as Pat and Debby Boone, Art Linkletter, Hal Lindsey, Dean Jones, Dale Evans, Chuck Woolery, and Florence Henderson- among others.  While at WCA, Donovan transformed the agency by signing numerous artists in a new genre that would later become known as contemporary Christian music as well as signing more high profile Christian sports celebrities.  Some of the artists and speakers he personally signed included Dion, Twila Paris, Meadowlark Lemon, Rosey Grier,  Reggie White, John Delorean  and Leon Patillo. He would become president of the company leading it to become the largest Christian talent agency in the country.  After getting married, he relocated to the state of Illinois (where his wife was born) and started his own corporate speakers bureau.  Along with the clients he brought with him from WCA, the firm expanded it’s roster to include some of the biggest names in sports, politics, and entertainment. In the early 90′s he underwent a spiritual awakening, or as he likes to put it, “a born again-born again experience” and completely changed careers.  He started a wholesale golf products company that rode the “Tiger Woods” golf boom of the 90′s; expanding  the company with a chain of brick and mortar retail stores in Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin.   Currently he is semi retired and living 50 miles west of Madison, Wisconsin.  In his free time he enjoys blogging, golfing, and riding his motorcycles on the back country roads of rural Wisconsin.
