Biography

Brian joined the Plancorp team as a Wealth Manager in 2008. By 2010, he’d worked his way to become Director of Wealth Management, and in 2017 became our Chief Planning Officer.

Originally from Springfield, Illinois, Brian moved to St. Louis in 1998 to attend Saint Louis University. After graduation, he began his career at PricewaterhouseCoopers, LLP, where he provided advanced income tax and estate planning services to high net worth families and corporate executives. He brings that experience to Plancorp’s family office practice, where he helps families understand, grow and preserve their wealth.

Outside of work and community involvement, he enjoys cooking (he’s still learning), hiking and reading. Nowadays Brian and his wife, Anna, spend most of their time sprinting after their two young sons.
