LOS ANGELES, May 29, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Michael J. Tomlinson, whose experience includes senior leadership roles in the nonprofit and agency world, has been named president at direct response fundraising firm Brewer Direct. The announcement was made by CEO Randy Brewer, with whom Mr. Tomlinson will team in leading the faith-first agency.
An accomplished business development executive with more than 25 years of direct marketing and fundraising experience, Mr. Tomlinson's expertise spans virtually every medium, ranging from print to digital as well as broadcast media. He has produced more than 50 talk radio programs broadcast on-air and online around the world.
His professional credits include managing interactive marketing for Focus on the Family in Colorado Springs.

"Every great agency continually challenges itself to innovate, to evolve its thinking and the way in which it brings value to its clients," said Mr. Brewer. "Michael Tomlinson embodies that spirit. We are delighted to welcome him aboard our team."
In addition to working closely with Brewer Direct's founder and CEO, Mr. Tomlinson joins a senior management team that includes executive vice-presidents Phil Stolberg and Shellie Speer, as well as experienced fundraising veterans who lead the LA-based agency's client services and creative teams.
