Klint Briney is a Lewistown native and grew up on a working grain and livestock farm. He launched first business at age 10 — a web design business, which he credits with helping to develop the passion that led to his career today in sports and entertainment marketing and public relations.
While a student at Lewistown Community High School, Klint began his college career by taking dual credit classes at SRC. He also worked on the farm and at Dairy Queen and kept up his web design business. He credits SRC with allowing him to plug in his education when he had the time to do so.
He then attended Butler University, studying business marketing, sports entertainment, and public relations, graduating in 2006 with a bachelor’s degree. While at Butler, he undertook several internships, including one at MTV in New York City, that he believes were integral in helping to learn who he was, both personally and professionally. He says he would not have been able to undertake that daunting of a schedule had he not had the ability to earn 26 credit hours from SRC before stepping foot on Butler’s campus.
Klint has worked for now-retired Indy 500 driver Sarah Fisher and NASCAR. In 2010, he founded his own Los Angeles-based company, BRANDed Management, a sports/entertainment marketing and public relations agency. He represents celebrities and athletes and teaches them how to handle media, secures sponsorship and endorsement deals, and manages some of the biggest events in the entertainment and sports industries. He has developed brands for athletes, celebrities, and corporations, including some of the biggest names in sports and entertainment, and has helped to plan events and promotions associated with The Today Show, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the Indy 500, The White House, and the Super Bowl.
He has published three books and has been featured and quoted in many media outlets, and he was a finalist for the 2012 White House Empact100 List of “The Top Entrepreneurs Under 30.”
Now 37, Klint lives in Los Angeles with Natalie, his wife of five years, and enjoys playing basketball, football, and volleyball, and he considers himself to be a fitness enthusiast.
