James Brobyn


James Brobyn is an entrepreneur and nonprofit advocate who co-founded the social enterprise, CauseEngine. Positively shaped by his time as an infantry officer in the United States Marine Corps, and his two tours in the Iraq War, James is passionate about service and designing new ways for nonprofits to build scale and bring better services to market.


In 2010, following thirteen years in the Marine Corps, James transitioned out of the military so that he could raise his daughter and pursue further education. Prior to founding CauseEngine, James was the Executive Director of the Travis Manion Foundation where he grew its reach and impact from a small local nonprofit to one of the most well respected and funded veteran serving organizations in the country.


Brobyn, Philadelphia native who graduated from The Hill School, the United States Naval Academy and the University of Pennsylvania, is a proud father and recipient of the Purple Heart Medal.
