Brett’s passion is helping entrepreneurs get what they want from their business. After a successful corporate career in consulting, turn-arounds and as CFO of a billion-dollar insurance company, Brett decided to pursue his dream of becoming an entrepreneur. Since then, he has started and run three different businesses.
The last of those was a healthcare company Brett took over and turned around from a $400k loss to a profit of $1.2 million in four years. But profitability did not mean success. The business lacked focus, and instead of being run by a functional, cohesive team, every decision went through Brett. That all changed when he read Traction and learned about The Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS). After using EOS in his business, and seeing its power first-hand, Brett set out to help others get what they want from their businesses.
Brett became a Certified EOS Implementer in 2015, and he now spends all his time coaching entrepreneurs and their teams, helping them implement EOS so they can reach their goals and enjoy the journey. Brett pulls from his deep financial expertise, successes and failures as a business owner (because the failures are where you really grow) and training as an elite endurance athlete to form a coaching style that drives to the root of issues, demands performance, and builds healthy, cohesive teams in the process.
Brett earned bachelor’s degrees in Mathematics and Economics from Vanderbilt University and a Master of Business Administration from the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University. He grew up in Huntsville, Alabama, but after almost 30 years in the Atlanta area, considers himself a native. He lives in the suburb of Kennesaw with his wife of 25 years Tricia, his daughters Allie and Cassady, and dogs Buddy-Baker and Roxie. In his spare time, he enjoys hiking and cooking with his family and racing mountain bikes with his friends.
