President & CEO, Alcool NB Liquor
Originally from Miramichi, NB Brian has built a career in the alcohol beverage industry as a leader who consistently delivers great results while simultaneously building highly engaged teams. As a result of his successful track record he has been able to grow his career as a sales rep in 2001 to being hired as the first non-politically appointed CEO of ANBL in 2014 at the age of 37. In 2017 Brian was tasked with leading the retail of legalized recreational cannabis for the province of New Brunswick. Under his leadership, Cannabis NB is instilling new energy in this emerging business, focusing primarily on social responsibility and customer experience, with the establishment of the overall portfolio.
In May of 2018, Brian received the honour of once again being named one of Atlantic Canada’s Top 50 CEO’s by Atlantic Business magazine for the third consecutive year.
When not at work Brian enjoys spending time with his wife Penny and their two children Ben (age 8) and Emily (age 4).
