C12 Chair since 2020
Originally from Southern California, Allen spent 20+ years in Executive Sales and Marketing roles within the networking and technology industries. His career spanned founding a start-up to managing AT&T’s channel partners that delivered over $12 billion in annual revenue. He built and managed worldwide sales teams, created innovative marketing partner programs, and built a growth culture that focused on high integrity selling. He was in the executive suite, was making great money, blessed by a loving and supportive marriage, and had a happy & healthy family. In worldly terms, “he had it all”…despite all that blessing, there was something missing – something not right. As he prayed diligently, studied the Word of God, and spoke with trusted mentors, he knew that his successful career lacked purpose – Kingdom purpose. Then, through a series of divine circumstances and events, God called him and his family to move to Franklin, TN, and join C12. He now serves and supports Christian CEOs and Business Owners to build great businesses for a greater purpose. Allen is supported by his wife Kim and their three children – Grace, Hudson, and Penelope. They all love to entertain, be in community with others, and are always looking for their next adventure!
