I am a professional problem solver. For the past 20 years I helped my organizations overcome whatever challenges they encountered. It doesn't matter if it's Ops, Tech, Product, Sales, realizing opportunities comes down to listening carefully, paying close attention to the details and considering all the options. Building a new company, cutting costs, rolling out new products can all be accomplished. Every business has issues, what challenges keep you up at night?

INTERESTS & HOBBIES
Vice President Production & Creative Services – Spectrum Reach
Brian is everything you could ever ask for in a partner, colleague, or vendor. Over several years, two acquisitions, and through the pandemic, Brian was a critical part of one of our biggest initiatives and a true partner throughout. We negotiated and executed against two self-service creative portals that we built in parallel. The project had the highest of expectations; Brian and his team executed with near-flawless precision under SLAs that evolved quickly. He has always been extremely personable, reliable, dedicated, and creative in his complex problem-solving. Working with Brian is a true pleasure, especially when the stakes are high, and reliability is critical.
Managing Partner - Maroon Ventures
My first opportunity to work with Brian occurred when Maroon Ventures was engaged to assist in the due diligence process during the acquisition of Metrix4Media. I was impressed with the maturity of the infrastructure as well as the overall architecture of the technology for such a young company. While Brian exhibits considerable subject matter expertise, he remains extremely approachable and open to new ideas. Brian's significant contributions made this one of the simplest due diligence processes I have ever been involved with. Since that experience, we have remained colleagues and worked together on several other engagements.
Director of Content Services – RealPage
Former Vice President of Production – ForRent.com
I first met Brian when ForRent.com engaged StandardCall for call measurement services in 2005, however it wasn't until many years later that we had the opportunity to work together. Media Distribution Solutions provided video services to ForRent.com for over a decade and in 2013, the video product was moved into my portfolio. Brian and I collaborated on a daily basis to strategize on existing and new product offerings for our organization. We successfully implemented process improvements and product enhancements that dramatically improved product knowledge among our Sales teams and increased revenue. He is skilled at identifying obstacles, developing solutions, and driving a team to execute directives from start to finish. Brian has exceptional technical acumen and has the unique ability to translate highly technical tasks into easy-to-understand language. I always appreciated his straightforward approach and strong work ethic. Our partnership brought value to both organizations.
