Focusing on employers and retirement planning since 1990, Brian started his career working for one of the 401(k) industry's leading retirement plan providers. In 2004, he joined LPL Financial to assist employers, participants, and individuals, working with them as they pursue their retirement and financial goals. His career focus is to assist individuals so that they can retire with dignity and to educate companies and their employees about retirement plans.
Brian has been securities registered since September of 1994. Because Brian believes that the success of the participant is central to the success of the plan, he has provided many live and web based education meetings in the past twenty years. Additionally, he has significant experience meeting with investment committees and plan sponsors guiding them on their fiduciary responsibilities. Finally, Brian has helped plan sponsors design and tailor their plans to the needs of the individual company and participants within the plan. This means that plan sponsors don’t have to just rely on the plan design ideas of compliance administrators, which are often not completely familiar with the business and the employees.
Brian earned the Chartered Retirement Plans Specialist® (CRPS®) designation from The College for Financial Planning. In 2005, Brian completed the Accredited Investment Fiduciary® (AIF®) program through the Center for Fiduciary Studies. This designation along with the education received and commitment to the AIF® ethical policy has prepared Brian to assist plan sponsors with the selection and ongoing monitoring of the investment offerings in their plan. In many cases, Brian can serve as a 3(21) fiduciary to the plan. He earned the Professional Plan Consultant™ designation, also from the Center for Fiduciary Studies. He holds the FINRA Series 6, 7, 63 and 66 registrations with LPL Financial and is an Investment Advisor Representative operating under the Registered Investment Advisor of LPL Financial.
