Our Focus-Profile [cached]


Alan Koch is the owner of Focus Resources, a business he started nearly 30 years ago. The business sprang from his passion for education and his earnest commitment to helping colleges and organizations do their best work in marketing and public relations.
Alan's passion for education comes, in part, from his time teaching -- three years teaching high school and 11 years teaching at the college level. In 1984, he moved from teaching into administrative work at Chemeketa Community College and served as Director of College Advancement for 19 years. Alan was in charge of college marketing, public relations, grant writing and student community service programs. He also managed the college's award-winning website.
As Director of College Advancement, Alan began sharpening his skills using the focus group process. Integrating the focus group process into planning at Chemeketa proved important in improving services and in guiding the development of its marketing and communications strategies. During that time, other colleges, organizations and businesses took notice and began to call on Alan to help with their marketing research and to help plan their communications strategies. Professional organizations also called on him to present around the United States on these assessment and marketing strategies.
In 2000, National Council for Marketing and Public Relations (NCMPR) invited him to lead workshops and consult with colleges and universities around the United States in website writing, design, marketing, assessment and management. Alan also worked, at that time, with the World Affairs Council to provide training in web marketing and design for managers of emerging Russian businesses.
Alan has watched and studied the emerging boomer market in the United States and in 2003 he helped Chemeketa Community College design and launch the Lifelong Learning Institute. The institute grew as a unique program offering retreat-style workshops and educational experiences for people over the age of 50. Alan served as coordinator of the institute until 2011, when he retired from the college.
NCMPR honored Alan in 2007 with the D. Richard Petrizzo Career Service Award for distinguished contributions to the marketing and public relations profession. In addition to this award, Alan has received more than 35 other regional and national awards for video and radio production, print materials, marketing campaigns and web design. He is the author of several articles on website design and management, qualitative research and, most recently, on marketing to the emerging boomer market.
Though he grew up in Iowa, Alan attended college in California. He has an A.A. degree from Diablo Valley College (Pleasant Hill, California), and bachelor's and master's degrees from the School of Journalism and Mass Communications at San Jose State University.
Alan lives in Portland, Oregon.
