Brian believes nothing is more important than communication. He works transparently to help clients minimize overall tax liability.

Brian joined the M&S tax team in 2016. He previously served in the Private Client Group of a large firm, as well as the tax and estate compliance and planning department for a local office. This experience informs his specialization in simplifying the tax process for high-net-worth individuals, private business owners, families and their related entities.

When he is not in the office, Brian enjoys trying new restaurants with his wife, playing Star Wars with his son, or acting the role of prince to his daughter’s princess. He enjoys running, watching movies and cheering on the Chicago Cubs and Bears.


What is most rewarding about being an accountant?

There is no better feeling than finding solutions for the people that have put their trust in you. Taxes can feel like a complicated and personal process; however, it does offer the opportunity to really get to know people and build trust. I take great pride in being able to solve my client’s tax issues and making the process as seamless as possible.

What is your hidden talent?

Movie trivia. I know way more about movies than I probably should.

In your own words, what’s different about Mowery & Schoenfeld?

M&S understands that the firm is only as good as the people working for it. The unique skill sets of each person at M&S complement each other and provide an environment that enables us to give clients the best possible service and expertise.
