Brian started his career as a CPA with one of the four largest global accounting firms and now serves as the Managing Partner of Bridgeworth’s Huntsville office. For over two decades, he has utilized a blend of technical expertise and common-sense financial direction to identify his clients’ needs and implement appropriate solutions. Brian primarily works with those facing life transitions or liquidity events. These clients often include business owners preparing for or finalizing the sale of their business, individuals liquidating shares of their employee-owned companies, as well as executives, physicians, and others focusing on retirement.

Brian has always had a passion for serving others. In 2017, he founded the Bridgeworth Community Fund, a corporate giving fund. It allows the Bridgeworth team to pool their time and financial resources together in a powerful way to help “bridge the gaps” of those having the greatest need within our community.

Brian grew up in Decatur, Alabama, and played collegiate tennis at The University of North Alabama. He graduated magna cum laude from UNA with a double major in accounting and finance. Brian and his wife, Jane, have been married for over 25 years and reside in Huntsville with their daughter, Emma, and son, Andrew. They enjoy traveling, playing golf and tennis, and spending time with their dogs, Toby, Henry, and Ollie.
