Jeffrey K. Brown Ph.D., R.P.E., B.C.E.

and Founder American Academy of Entomological Sciences
Brown received his B.S. in Vertebrate Zoology with a minor in Wildlife Disease
and Zoo Medicine and Ph.D. in Medical Entomology from the University of
California, Davis and his M.B.A. from Central Michigan University. He had a
brief career as a Captain in the United States Air Force as a consultant to
combat forces worldwide. He was awarded a tri-service commendation medal from
the Department of Defense for his work on creating Disease Vector Ecology
Profiles (DVEP’s) that the armed forces carried during the aborted attempt to
rescue the American hostages in Iran. The DVEP’s were hailed by the Department
of Defense as “having a major impact on the health of military personnel
worldwide due to diseases of public health importance.”
Brown spent three years as executive Director of the American Sanitation
Institute where he directed a 30 person work force of sanitarians that addressed
public health issues, problems and solutions to bring food manufacturers into
compliance in the food processing industry. He trained his workforce in

moved to Wisconsin where he was the Director of Technical Development for S. C.
Johnson Wax and spent 10 years with this multi-billion dollar a year global
marketer of consumer and commercial products and was a seasoned visionary for
ideation sessions, strategic planning, marketing, team building, business and
technology assessment. Dr. Brown received many awards for innovation and product
development. Dr. Brown was one of the individuals that created the Food
Sanitation System and Manual for the Wal-Mart retail food business and would
periodically revise and consult to Wal-Mart and other retail food companies.
Dr. Brown and his team developed and launched the Vector Electronic Fly Trap that spawned a new market segment for Johnson Wax and other various non contaminating insect light trap technologies in the pest management industry that soon followed our lead. Our cooperative research with major universities on the dangers of insect electrocution devices convinced the US Government to ban these devices around people and food contact areas due to the harmful airborne insect particles, airborne metal particles and airborne bacteria created by the exploding of insects into the air by the insect electrocution devices.
Vector Electronic Fly Trap was the only trap of its kind to be allowed in food
service, manufacturing and food contact areas. Since the launch of the Vector in
1988, the competition launched “knock off” traps but could not compete
against the Vector.
