“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”

– Leonardo Da Vinci

Brian has lived in Peoria for most of his life. Born and raised there he has always been passionate about contributing to his community by developing relationships and serving others. Those who have known him for a long time would describe him as sincere: he is always looking for a way to connect and get to know others.  

Brian has deep experience within the insurance industry, having worked on securities and specialty insurance, then migrated to independent agency retail to work more closely with the businesses throughout the community. He started his own retail division for employee benefits and property solutions before eventually bringing his wealth of expertise to the Ledgestone team in March of 2020. Brian thrives on relationships and always strives to identify issues and develop solutions for his clients in order to set them up for long term success.  

Brian now lives in a historic neighborhood of Peoria with his wife and two kids. He enjoys restoring their 132 year old Queen Anne Victorian home, spending time with his family, and tries to run and play golf whenever he can. Brian is an active member of the Peoria business community as the president of the Creve Coeur Club, as well as serving on the board of several non-profits. He hopes to one day get his pilot’s license.
