Brian has been part of The River since 2000 and joined the staff team in 2021. As Executive Director, he is responsible for maximizing The River’s impact through the exercise of high-level administrative leadership (strategic planning and budgeting, management systems that promote organizational vitality and missional effectiveness). Brian is passionate about stewardship broadly defined, how we use all that God has given us, individually and collectively, to advance His Kingdom.
Prior to joining The River staff team, Brian spent over 20 years at the Lucile Packard Foundation for Children's Health. In his time at The River, he has served on the Board, as a small group coach, and on the Giving Team.
In his free time, Brian loves walks at the beach and to travel whenever he can. He enjoys hikes with minimal elevation change and maximum views. Brian and his wife Loris have three children: Anna, Wesley, and Caleb.
