Whether with his client partners – which include top names from across the federal government, the nonprofit world and the Fortune 500 – or within his own organization, Nathan Brewer’s career has been dedicated to solving organizations’ toughest challenges with innovative solutions that disrupt the lines between strategy and technology. A few years after graduating from Vanderbilt University, Nathan returned to the nation’s capital (where he spent much of his childhood) with Sapient – a leader in the technology world and today, the #1 digital agency in the U.S. Coming up as a consultant and leader with the company, Nathan worked early on to leverage Sapient’s experience with some of the world’s biggest brands to provide game-changing solutions in the public sector. Nathan has worked from the beginning of his career to shift paradigms in the consulting environment. As one of the first employees in Sapient’s Government Services business unit, he was challenged to help profitably operate a government consultancy within the context of a global commercial firm. As a leader in the business, he helped grow Sapient’s government practice to nearly 500 employees, and its revenue by over $50 million. During this time, he earned an MS in Engineering and Technology Management from Oklahoma State University and an MBA from Emory University and became a Vice President in 2011. Later, looking for innovative ways to expand the firm’s portfolio, Nathan began to explore the ways creative social change takes place in the world, and how consulting companies can play a constructive role in that change; he went on to start Sapient’s dedicated nonprofit practice, and today, leads Sapient’s Nonprofit Practice -- whose clients include well-known pillars of Washington’s nonprofit and association world as well as global nongovernmental organizations. He’s an active writer and speaker within the industry.
