While many cannabis professionals will tell you they were surprised to find themselves in the cannabis industry, Brian’s involvement is no accident. The entrepreneurial fire that sparked several successful non-cannabis related companies has created opportunities spanning corporate grows to tech startups to private equity funds. Brian is a current partner and Chief Operator of BSC Group, a distinguished and forward-thinking cannabis consulting firm with an international client base.

Experience gained while leading cannabis conglomerate Palliatech through the build out and licensing phases of their vertically-integrated flagship facility in NJ served as a catalyst, allowing Brian to perfect process operations from blueprint to sale, and design systems to drive the costs of pharmaceutical grade cannabis production to an unprecedented low.

Since becoming independent in early 2016, Brian has traveled across North America, and recently Africa & Europe, providing strategic leadership for cannabis cultivators, processors, manufacturers, and retail operations. He has toured and assessed over 100 different facilities, including one of the largest retail dispensaries in the US, the largest cultivator and processor in Canada, and the largest license holder in the US. Brian has consulted for both cannabis license applicants and operations in 24 of the 29 legal states, three Canadian provinces, and a handful of other countries abroad.

BSC Group leads operations through concept creation, build-out, and expansion phases, helping them become and remain competitive as the industry grows and consolidates. They also advise private equity investors and funds, and ancillaries like enterprise seed-to-sale software companies, insurance firms, and law firms, helping them make profitable decisions on their way in and out of the space.

Brian currently splits time between NJ and CO, and lives with his wife and 2 trouble-maker senior dogs.
