Derek Distenfield 's Bio

As a modern marketing evangelist and award-winning national brand builder, I am known for bringing revolutionary new ideas to organizations and driving explosive growth.

For nearly twenty years, I have blazed high impact careers in both corporate and non-profit organizations. Currently the growth strategist behind Bunker Labs, USA, I transformed this non-profit, serving veteran entrepreneurs, into a premiere national brand that has achieved $17M in revenue and hired over 170 people the past two years.

Prior to this, I ignited immediate growth in a highly regulated industry as CEO of Nextgen Justice, a social enterprise start-up that served as an alternative to traditional legal venues. As founding visionary and chief evangelist, I developed a product that grew its consumer base 50%, 17 of 18 months in business.

In my early career, I profoundly influenced the culture of We The People Legal Document Services franchise. Over the course of four years, I achieved record-breaking, multi-million dollar sales and became ranked on Entrepreneur Magazine’s 500 most successful Franchise list.

I am passionate about breaking barriers, leading innovation, and inspiring people to believe they can achieve. I have been a keynote speaker at the Military Defense and Veterans Opportunities Summit, One Spark Innovation Conference and International Conference on Business Incubation. Beyond public speaking, I am also a mentor and start-up business advisor for GrowthX, Google Pioneer Accelerator and LifeFlip Media.
