Don Britton, Member-at-Large

Don brings nearly 25 years of entrepreneurial and accounting experience to his role on ERS’s Board of Directors. Through Don’s vision and leadership, he became one of the first pioneers in the cloud computing space, successfully growing his company, Network Alliance, into a global, award-winning technology and service organization. In December 2018 Don sold the company, which was widely recognized for the excellent culture, systems, and organizational structure he and his team had developed.

Prior to founding Network Alliance, Don was the Controller and Director of Operations for Mario Morino, technology innovator and leading venture philanthropist. As such, Don successfully managed the accounting and operational services, as well as developed and implemented managerial applications for use throughout the Morino Group, the Morino Institute and its affiliated partners. Don’s initial career after college began in Public Accounting with Beers & Cutler (acquired by Baker Tilly International). 

Don believes strongly in giving back to the community and is involved with various non-profit organizations, including the Entrepreneurs’ Organization and Eastern Ridge School. 

When not at home in Virginia or the Outer Banks, Don enjoys giving back to the community, extreme sports and exploring new places. Growing up in England, Greece, and Germany, Don developed a love for travel. Don recently embarked on his greatest adventure to date with the expansion of his family. He and his wife enjoy introducing their two daughters (one of whom attended ERS) to their many passions and the girls are already live music loving, wilderness exploring, beach babies.
