Brian is an accomplished businessman with more than 35 years of success and experience.
Nearly three decades ago when Brian, members of his family, and an associate bought into the business, annual revenues for APW Wyott Foodservice Equipment Co. were approximately $4 million. In time, it grew to become one of the nation's largest manufacturers of food service equipment. When the firm was sold in 2006, the company had annual revenues in excess of $110 million.
A native of South Africa, Brian interned at Arthur Anderson while completing undergraduate studies and moved to the United States in 1985. He most recently served as chief operating officer of his firm, APW Wyott, where he was responsible for profits, product design, engineering, operations, and customer and technical service. Brian helped grow revenues through product and company acquisitions, strategic planning, and international sales. Before APW Wyott, he was president and general manager of a large South African foundry, which was a division of a larger foundry group. He also served as director on the foundry's main board.
