Evan McGowan-Watson

Co-Founder & Head of Growth



Meet Evan



Hi, thanks for visiting my website. I’m Evan, Head of Growth and one of the original co-founders of BrandYourself.com. Patrick Ambron, Pete Kistler and I built this company for one main reason: to make sure that when a name gets googled, only the most relevant information appears. It all started when Pete had trouble securing an internship while we were in college; it turns out there was another Pete Kistler who was listed as a criminal in Google searches. He tried going to traditional reputation companies for help, but all they offered were opaque processes at a price tag of over $25k. At BrandYourself, we have built a company that empowers its clients to take control of their online reputations at an affordable price.


About Evan


I live in New York City, but was cultivated in Vermont and my passions tend to represent those two very different sides of the spectrum. I love connecting with other makers, creators and entrepreneurs. My work at BrandYourself thoroughly represents the New York side of me; I work relentlessly towards our growth and scaling our operations quickly, but elegantly.  The Vermont roots are still strong; I love kiteboarding, snowboarding, woodworking, metalsmithing, and home brewing. If you’re into any of those things, I would love to connect. If you’re not, I bet you’re still interesting and would probably still love to connect. (probably)
