Senior Manager, Brand Partnerships at The Economist

Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, Derrick is a Chicago transplant who believes that nothing is impossible and therefore questions everything. He is a grizzled advertising industry veteran with a bachelor’s from Rutgers University, currently managing Brand Partnerships for The Economist. Derrick is an embarrassing uncle to two teenage girls, and godfather to three adolescent boys.  While Derrick’s musical talents have yet to be cultivated, his immaculate ear is partial to a range of stylings from Sade to Wu-Tang Clan.
