Meet Brian

If there’s one thing we can say about Brian, it’s that he’s not afraid to take risks.

Brian’s career path started in commercial real estate and then moved to day trading, but his love of connecting with people led him to Protis Global. He realized that in recruitment you need to develop a deep, thorough understanding of what both parties are looking for to make the best placement at the very start.

Now Brian has settled into the fast-paced world of recruitment. That’s right, the same guy who used to trade stocks is now connecting people with their dream jobs. Talk about a pivot! But it all makes sense when you hear Brian talk about his passion for uncovering people’s motivations and priorities. He’s like a therapist, but instead of prescribing medication, he’s placing people in positions where they can thrive.

So, what makes Brian stand out from the pack? Well, he’s not one to sit back and let the world pass him by. He’s eager to learn from anyone and everyone, no matter their experience level. He’ll ask more questions, bring more energy, and wants to understand what’s being done and how it connects to the big picture. Plus, he works to get it done better and faster while having fun.

When he’s not busy being a recruitment rockstar, Brian’s all about football. Specifically, his beloved New York Giants. He spent over three years as a fantasy football columnist for SBNation, so if you need advice on who to start or sit, he’s your go-to guy.

Brian graduated from American University, earning a BSBA with a double specialization in finance and marketing.
