Brandon began his career in the office technology industry in 1969 with Gray Autograph selling dictation equipment. After a year of sales, he joined the company's service department. Gray Autograph was purchased by Lanier Business Products, and Brandon relocated to the Bay Area where he worked as district service manager in San Francisco and regional sales manager in Los Angeles. After spending 12 years in the service department, Brandon requested a transfer back to Spokane where he sold word processing equipment for five years until Lanier closed the office. Lanier negotiated with ABC Office Equipment to service the base of word processing and dictation equipment, and Brandon was hired to sell copy machines for ABC. He became a partner in the business, and 10 years later, ended up the majority owner of the dealership.
