Brandon Cumby is speaker, running coach, consultant, and philanthropist. He is a CPA by trade who spent enough time in sales to not just focus on debits and credits. Brandon is a “recovering accountant” who found a niche as a consultant, a subject matter expert in ERP applications and business productivity software. In the midst of a career transition and divorce, Brandon found passion in running and began training for his first marathon when tragedy struck. He was electrocuted and suffered a near-fatal fall, with injuries that left him fractured and demoralized. It was during healing and recovery that he found his true “north star.” Running dominated his physical recovery and he set his sights on the Dallas Marathon, all while he was still struggling to walk. Realizing that his story of struggle, persistence, and triumph has power to inspire and motivate others, he started his own practice coaching new runners and began delivering motivational speeches.
