Meet the Industry's Most Innovative Team
Brian is a visionary, leading Elevate in leveraging the latest financial technology that makes consumer directed benefits easier to understand and use for employees and their families. Prior to founding Elevate, Brian led the team at Businessolver that developed and launched a proprietary, in-house consumer directed benefits solution for Fortune 100, state government, and mid-sized business clients.
As co-founder and CTO, Brian is involved in every aspect of Elevate’s development and sets the technology vision. As the former CTO and co-founder of ConnectYourCare, an industry leader recently acquired by Optum, Brian wrote the original code for its platform 20 years ago in his apartment. Now, he’s applying all the lessons learned from two decades of experience to the Elevate platform.
