Brian celebrating his win with last year’s winner, Joanne Pons
He encourages each team member to find an area of focus within the product to develop their expertise, using MyVest’s annual professional development stipend to attend classes and conferences to deepen their knowledge. His weekly one-on-one meetings aren’t just simple status updates; he approaches each meeting with the mindset of “what can I do to help you succeed?”
Passionate About MyVest
Brian is the ultimate MyVest evangelist. He’s passionate about educating people about why what we do is important, and why the way we do things is the best in the marketplace. He hosts an introductory education sessions for all new hires, as well as companywide lunch & learns to discuss the product roadmap and vision. (And there’s always that open door policy if you’ve ever got questions.)
And you never know where Brian will show up — he loves making unannounced guest appearances at program team meetings, where he solicits input on what’s good, what’s bad, what could we be doing better.
Brian’s infectious smile has been a fixture here at MyVest for 7 years now — a lifetime in the tech world. While he’s still young himself, he acts as a mentor throughout the company, encouraging MyVestors to develop their skills, stand up and be recognized, and accelerate their careers.
It’s one of those mentees who best sums up why Brian was named the 2017 Best Tech Manager in San Francisco:
“The knowledge, patience and encouragement Brian provides is so generous and consistent that it’s almost impossible NOT to overachieve when you’re on his team.”
