Judge Victoria Brennan joined the AUS Board following more than 13 years as Assistant State Attorney with the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office.

AUS, Inc., was first established by Judge Brennan’s father, Joseph Brennan, in the summer of 1967. Initially a single office in the heart of Center City, Philadelphia, AUS grew into a portfolio of enterprises with a nationwide reach serving markets throughout the world. Currently, AUS business enterprises include a market research systems production company, a market research company, a utility consultancy company and a valuation firm.
Built on three basic Principles of Excellence—personal integrity, superior performance standards and unwavering loyalty to both colleagues and clients—AUS has continually sought out new opportunities and innovative means of creating business-based solutions and generating corporate value.
During its more than 50 years of existence, AUS has made investments in anything from flight schools, print publications and printing plants to intellectual property management services, financial consulting and market research operations. Over the decades, AUS invested heavily in mainframe computers for consolidating financial data from regulated utilities (1970s); has acquired and cultivated a firm founded by one of the earliest adopters of computer-supported phone survey research (1980s); and has shifted its focus on data-driven consulting and market research practices (1990s and 2000s).
Victoria Brennan retired from the bench in 2016, completing a 10-year career in the judiciary and nearly 30 years of service to the Florida legal community.
