“Brian augments his excellent knowledge and experience in finance, technology and systems as a CFO/COO with a differentiator skill of understanding the absolute importance of culture alongside strategy. He did an amazing job in partnering with me on designing and implementing the strategy of “multiple brands one infrastructure” where he was successful in leading and coaching his team to integrate, embrace and accept the strategy. Utilizing those skills, Brian will be a great coach, mentor and a guide to senior executives who will certainly benefit. I will work with Brian again.”

– Bashar Alrehany, CEO Investment Research Division, Euromoney

“I had the pleasure to sit with Brian on Euromoney Global Finance Leadership team. His contributions to the leadership team have always been invaluable. Brian was, at all times, an extremely valued colleague who showed a great capacity for combining “big picture” visionary thinking with a real eye for detail. He was focussed and disciplined in all that he did but could mix these attributes with a real sense of humour and fun which helped greatly. His journey as Divisional Chief Financial Officer including his stint as Managing Director for one of Euromoney business units have been impressive. This was during a turbulent period where he had the opportunity to lead one of the biggest turnarounds in the business. Brian played a pivotal role through this phase, not only in leading and co-ordinating the financial and decision support required but also through the significant contribution which he made to driving the underlying strategic thinking behind the change programme and its component elements. With his analytical mindset, breakthrough thinking and strategic influencing skills, he is a great asset to any firm that he works for.”

— Toby Burton, Chief Financial and Operating Officer, Fastmarkets

“Brian’s coaching style and trusted leadership helped align our leadership team to meet our goals during a very tough period for our business. He’s a strong, collaborative leader, team builder and a good listener. He developed a reputation for helping others succeed.”

— Diane Alfano, Former Chairman and CEO of Institutional Investor
