Diversity, Inclusion, & Equity
Recognized by the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors (NAIFA), as their 2018 Diversity Champion, Brian has been a passionate advocate, ally, and catalyst for change. He has written multiple articles on developing diverse business practices and made exceptional efforts promoting the full and equal participation of diverse people within the insurance and financial services profession. Brian knows it all begins with helping people see things for what they are: Opportunity is not something each person can reach up and grasp. For many members of underrepresented groups, accessing opportunity requires a stepladder and a supporting cast of people holding it firmly in place. Brian works to move individuals & organizations away from excitement, interest, and social pressure toward action and systemic engagement.
Branding, Marketing & Technology
A self-avowed “tech junkie,” Brian launched the “That’s My Financial Guy” podcast in June of 2019 and published his 1st book, “The Retirement Income Pyramid” June 1st of 2020, two prime examples of his online content, marketing and PR prowess. He is a routine author for publications, such as Associations NOW, Insurancenewsnet, Advisor Today, and a frequent guest on several podcasts. Recognizing the need to rise above digital disruption and stand out from the crowd, Brian helps producers develop a strategic digital brand and marketing framework to catapult their practices forward.
