WSO Podcast


In this episode, Brian shares his winding path from a non-target school into an accounting role right after the financial crisis. First, he explains how he was able to pivot into RBC for a middle office accounting position. From there, we learn how he was aggressive in trying to get to the front office, the challenges he faced once he got there and the subsequent jump to private equity at HIG Capital. Listen to hear why after years of struggling to get to the top of the mountain in finance he left to go start his company called LCS, a high-end maker of cool custom laces with NBA and MLB licenses.
