Our New President


Effective Jan. 1, 2023, Robert Young III has assumed the role of President of Brown Capital Management, in addition to his current role as head of marketing/client service. Rob is taking over the office from Keith Lee, who remains chief executive officer, chief investment officer and senior portfolio manager on the Small Company Team.


“This year, we will celebrate the 40th anniversary of Brown Capital’s founding,” says Founder and Executive Chairman Eddie Brown. “Over the next 40 years, it will be imperative that we maintain the firm culture that has been the foundation of our success thus far,” he continued. “After working with Rob for 23 years, I can tell you there is no other person on the planet who embodies the values and carries the culture of Brown Capital more than Rob does,” he says.


This appointment comes one year after Keith assumed the CEO title from Eddie. “The asset management industry is a dynamic one, and, no doubt, the decades ahead will be different from the decades behind us,” says Keith. “With so many years of experience working with clients and prospective clients, Rob will be a great partner to me and the Management Committee in ensuring that Brown Capital evolves to meet our clients’ growing needs,” Keith says.


Rob joined Brown Capital from T. Rowe Price in 1999 to build out the firm’s distribution team. He has served on the firm’s Management Committee since 2007, and is currently the president of the firm’s mutual fund trust. Outside of Brown Capital, Rob serves as the president of the board of trustees of the McDonogh School, a prestigious private school in Owings Mills, Md.
