David Falloure is a member of the board for the Houston History Alliance and a brand historian—which begs the question: What in Don Draper’s name is a “Brand Historian?” It’s simple––take a 30-year veteran of marketing communications with a more than passing interest in history, then give him a blog Falloure is author of “Brands in History”, a hard copy book based on his blog of the same title, in which historical figures and events are reviewed through a marketing lens. He is also author of “Sheer Will: The Story of the Port of Houston and the Houston Ship Channel”. He’s been featured in the documentary, the Houston Ship Channel: Deep Water Centennial.
For his day job, Falloure’s work and leadership have been recognized by the Business Marketing Association and the American Marketing Association. There have also been a few mentions in AdWeek and The Houston Business Journal.
In addition to helping clients and agencies build strategies or craft messages, Falloure has also spent significant time as a bi-weekly columnist for the Examiner News Group, contributor to the Houston/Heights Tribune, The Buzz Magazines, andThe Houston Chronicle. There’s even a novel due out in fall 2015.
The Alliance is very proud to have David on our board: In July of 2015, Falloure was commissioned by the Governor of the State of Texas as as Admiral of the Texas Navy—an organization with the purpose of preserving and promoting the hIstory of Texas and it’s two navies.
