Alan was born into the Robertson family. He is the oldest son of Phil Alexander Robertson and his wife, Marsha Kay Robertson. The Robertson Family owns and operates Duck Commander Company. It was originally meant to sell their family trademark duck call but over time it has expanded. He worked for the business from his teens and usually drove his father around selling duck calls. The business has become very successful, a multi-million dollar concern that sells products including instructional videos and hunting equipment. While he was there to help with the rise of the business, he then left to become a pastor and focus on ministry work. While he continues to work for the company, he didn’t appear often in the show “Duck Dynasty” for the first few years.
Eventually, Alan and his wife got on board with the show and became a part of the business. They started appearing during the fourth season, which was considered the season with the highest viewership. He is also called Marshal Robertson in the show, and is often on the public relations side of the company. According to him, he uses this opportunity to spread the word of God as well.

The men in the family are well known for their beards and for being Christians as well. The fourth season of the series had around 11.8 million viewers and the business has said to have earned $400 million in revenue and $80 million in advertising sales during 2013 alone. While the show is managed mainly by Alan’s brother, Willie Robertson, everyone is very involved in the business. Because of their success, the family has also made numerous other television appearances, on “Jimmy Kimmel Live”, “Conan”, “Light Night with Jimmy Fallon”, Katie”, “700 Club”, and many more.
