Upon graduation, he started his career as a production supervisor, then grew into the role of a Six Sigma Black Belt with Kwikset Corporation. While at Kwikset, Brian was also given the opportunity to step into the Master Black Belt role. He was then introduced to the consulting industry “by chance,” meeting with an old college roommate at a sushi restaurant.
