Prior to NCF, Bryan got his undergrad in theology, and later, an MBA. He thought he wanted to be a pastor, but discovered that wasn’t for him. Though some early mentors, he found he had a gift for marking and strategy. He was instrumental in leading a handful of companies to double-digit growth and led one company to make the Inc. 500 list of fastest growing companies – twice. In 2005, he started a consulting firm focused on marketing strategy and sales team effectiveness. In his role as a consultant and coach, Bryan has worked with nearly 70 organizations, ranging from start-ups to the Fortune 500. Bryan has served as an adjunct faculty member at California Baptist University teaching business ethics.
Bryan is a passionate outdoorsman and a Wilderness First Responder. He hikes up to 500+ miles a year in the local mountains and in the High Sierras. He is also a rock climber, CrossFitter, and a champion for encouraging people to get fit after 50.
Bryan married his high school sweetheart, Becky, 30+ years ago. They are now “empty-nesters” with two children, Westley and Courtney, and live in Riverside, CA.
