Gwen WalshI have had the pleasure of working with Brian in several leadership-related capacities. He is a critical thinking, quick-learning, determined, impeccably organized and, above all else, people-centric CIO. 

While Brian is certainly innovative, strategic, technology fluent, business savvy and customer care focused, watching him authentically connect with his team is simply inspiring. Albeit many leaders claim that their people are their #1 asset, spend just 5 minutes with Brian’s organization and you’ll soon discover that he is “the real deal” — in the eyes of his people. He has mastered the art of bringing out the very best in each person, appreciating their diversity and uniqueness, to where the sum of the whole is exponentially more powerful than its individual members. 

What I also admire about Brian is his “can do”, break-through-all-obstacles attitude that is fueled by his energy, positivity, professional passion and capacity to take on herculean efforts because he is truly driven by a future of possibilities. I’m not in the least surprised that Brian continues to advance in his career via earned promotions and role expansions.
