Brian has had a long-standing commitment to community service that spans a variety of charitable organizations over the years. Given the recent needs associated with the Coronavirus pandemic, it was only natural for him to explore how to make another commitment to community service. Brian’s desire to reach out to help others during this very trying time, gave rise to Utah Pay It Forward. As co-founder of Utah Pay It Forward, Brian brings much experience to the organization from his participation as a member of the Board of Directors over the years with several charitable organizations that include, the Columbus Community Center and True Sioux Foundation. Brian’s enthusiasm, resourcefulness and devotion to charitable fund raising has contributed to the success of such organizations as the Mark Eaton Celebrity Golf Classic, which he co-created, and other worthy organizations such as the Treasure Chest Fund, Habitat for Humanity, The Anasazi Foundation, the Shakti Krupa Charitable Trust and Operation Pay It Forward (OPIF).
Brian believes that his very diverse employment and business background lends itself to his proven success as a valuable resource, organizer, planner, facilitator and fundraiser for any organization with whom he is associated. His diverse work experience, which includes his position as Director of Utilities for Wadsworth Brothers Construction, managing complex infrastructure relocation for critical utilities on major heavy highway projects, including the I-15 Technology Corridor Project, requires a unique skill set which transfers well to his charitable community endeavors.
His experience as a partner of Five Diamond Fund Managers, a real estate development company, along with his real estate experience as an agent with Realty One Group Signature adds to his unique and valuable experience portfolio. As the founder of Fins and Feathers, an outdoor rod and gun club providing world class adventures for executive retreats, team building experiences and outdoor business development opportunities, Brian has developed extraordinary business and personal relationships, which affords him unique and valuable insights into bringing needs and resources together to solve unique and diverse challenges.
