Seth Brown


Seth’s background includes serving 5 years in the US Army as a platoon leader,  convoy commander in Afghanistan, and a General’s Aide-de-camp. In graduate school, he worked with the Economic Bureau of the Department of State and at The Reinvestment Fund, a Community Development Financial Institution in Philadelphia. 

Driven by a desire to solve complex problems, he joined Quantified Ventures in 2017 to improve the health of people, communities, and the planet by unlocking capital for outcomes-based solutions.   

Seth leads the Forestry and Land Use practice, enabling land managers, private landowners, conservationists, and governments to take on ambitious projects to better protect and share their resources. In his spare time, you can find Seth camping in a 1986 Volkswagon vanagon, fly fishing, or heading out for live music.
