Brian grew up locally in Strongsville, Ohio and earned his bachelor’s degree in Accounting at the University of Cincinnati after graduating high school. After college, Brian moved back to the Cleveland area where he attended Cleveland State and earned his Master of Business Administration.
Upon returning to Cleveland, Brian quickly went into Big Five accounting with Ernst & Young and started to learn and uncover his passion for the financial services industry. He and Sanjay decided to combine their passion for the industry and work together and create JK Investment Group in 2002. Brian ended up branching out and has spent the last 15 years working on the distribution side of the business with companies like Ohio National and Transamerica. With this experience gained, he decided to rejoin JK Investment Group and bring his knowledge and expertise back to the firm.
When away from the office, Brian spends most of his time with his wife (Sherri) and two daughters (Riley and Reese). He is an avid Cleveland sports fan and has recently been transformed into a soccer fan through youth athletics. In addition, he is a car enthusiast and enjoys spending time on the golf course and with friends.
