“A lot of people end up in difficult circumstances and don’t always know where to turn. There are some really terrific organizations in our community that are set up to help people with all kinds of needs in different stages of their life.”
Brian grew up in a tough New York neighborhood. He was hanging around the wrong people and making bad decisions, so he was given a choice: He could go to the Boys and Girls Club or somewhere much worse. That’s when everything changed. He started playing basketball and paying attention in school and went on to lead several United Ways across the United States. Now, as president and CEO of United Way of Greater Nashville, Brian works to ensure that our community supports important organizations that care about our neighbors and help to guide them on the right path.
