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 currently serves on the boards of Summit Adventure, Love Riverside, Intergitas, and the Inland Valley’s Mission Increase. He also leads a hiking and mountaineering non-profit called Summit Warrior Project – helping veterans and at-risk young men find hope, purpose and connection through adventure.
Bryan is a passionate outdoorsman. 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.
