Marne Brobeck

Co-Founder/Creative Director

Marne “Wolf” Brobeck is Co-Founder of Branding Iron and oversees all things creative. After a 16-year stint in Atlanta, Brobeck found his way back to East Tennessee where he continues to unveil unforgettable imagery. Ask Marne about his expansive collection of gold statues and advertising accolades, and he will shrug it off, inviting a more interesting discussion about flint knapping or winemaking.

“After many years–and even more clients, you start to fill an eclectic bag of knowledge. Oh, I could go on-and-on discussing the finer points of microporosity, the down-blending of uranium, or the rigidity of copolymer polypropylene,” he says with a smile. “But I’ll spare you the pain.”
