Brian is President of Garden of Life, the leading Atrium Innovations brand.
A passionate and dedicated individual, and a true Garden of Life ambassador, Brian has worked for the brand for 14 of its 17 years. Indeed, Brian helped the original founder Jordan Rubin, launch Garden of Life in 2001, and worked as its Chief Financial Officer until 2005.
Wanting to broaden his experience within the larger health and wellness environment, Brian then took a 2 year detour to become Chief Accounting Officer and VP of Finance for Ameripath, Inc., a $1.0 billion anatomic pathology lab company owned by Welsh, Carson, Anderson, and Stowe (WCAS), the largest healthcare private equity group in the United States. In May 2007 Brian helped lead the sale of Ameripath to Quest Diagnostics. Brian rejoined Garden of Life as its President in 2007, compelled by the company’s unfettered mission of Empowering Healthier Lives, which in turn, affords Brian the opportunity to tangibly make a difference in people’s lives.
Brian lives in gorgeous West Palm Beach, Florida with his beautiful wife Kristen and his lovely daughters Logan and Whitney. A firm believer in giving back and getting involved in the community, Brian takes part in many different local projects, as well as sits on the Special Olympics Advisory Board.
