While founding a startup real estate development and construction company, Brian earned a degree in finance from Western New England University, which led him to the financial services world. Realizing that the professional financial services being provided to his company could be improved upon, he sought to deliver quality advice as an investment advisor, registered representative and insurance agent with New York Life and its corporate investment advisor, Eagle Strategies.
Brian’s natural fit with small business owners in business-to-business relationships formed the basis for his career transition to supporting other financial advisors. Starting his career at Mass Mutual Financial, he progressed to The Hartford and then Mercury Financial. Throughout his professional roles, Brian has been consistently aiding financial advisors in their practices, delivering quality risk management, wealth preservation, business planning and income tax planning solutions via case discovery, design and presentation.
Now working for Raymond James Insurance Solutions, an affiliate of Raymond James & Associates, Inc., and focusing solely on its advisors, Brian serves the Northeast, New York state, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. By using Brian, financial advisors are able to bring in a specialized consultant to help ensure the advice, strategies and products their clients are considering are appropriate for their individual situations.
Brian resides in Western Massachusetts with his family. When he isn’t working, he takes any opportunity to spend time hiking, fishing and skiing. While at home, he enjoys making furniture in his woodshop and playing golf.
