With a lifelong passion for helping those affected by traumatic life events, Brian joins Coldstream after 17 Years at Microsoft where he was successful at driving financial planning, business planning, product management, and strategy functions. During his career he has managed billion-dollar businesses such as Office for Mac, Office 365 Enterprise, Windows Phone, and Windows Embedded and brought several new products to market including Office Mobile and Microsoft Work & Play.
While in college at the University of Washington, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Business Administration with concentrations in Finance and Marketing, Brian worked for a major financial services advisor who focused on Special Needs Trust stewardship. Brian had long hoped to get back into financial services in a second career and is thrilled to join Coldstream’s DAS (Disability Advisory Services) team. His primary responsibilities include DAS business strategy and marketing efforts.
In addition to his passion for helping those with disabilities, Brian can also be found cheering for our Seattle Seahawks, doing photography, and participating in disability recreation sports. He spends free time mentoring those who have recently had traumatic injuries.
