Brian L. VandenBrink, CIMA®
Consultant | Managing Partner
As a young man, math, finance, and entrepreneurship were simply intriguing to me. Through a series of interesting events, I entered the banking industry immediately after high school, and became a full-time employee and college student over the early years of my career. Several years later in 2002, I joined the CapTrust team. With a broad background, education, and experience in business and finance I find myself serving clients today as an Investment Consultant and fulfill the function of Managing Partner on behalf of the practice.
I love people. At the core, this drives me daily. I have a fundamental belief that as individuals we were built for relationship, and I take great delight in the fact that virtually every facet of my life finds me with opportunity to interact with a host of people. It’s been said of me that I view strangers as friends I simply haven’t met yet.
Coupled with enjoyment of relationships built with transparency and on trust is my understanding and interest in matters of finance and investing. Whether serving an individual, a family, or an institutional client, it is my aim to come alongside others, grow in our understanding of each other, and ensure alignment of finances and investments with life-mission, objectives, and goals. Ultimately it is my hope to be part of a process to bring about understanding and confidence to an area of life that can often be overwhelming for individual and institutional clients alike.
Personally, I married my high-school sweetheart back in 1995. We are soaking in the window-wide-open-years of parenting a young family. We love deeply and laugh often with our four children; two daughters and two sons who range in ages from 15 down to 7. Time away from the office is spent adventuring in creation with my family, enjoying the company of friends, visiting with neighbors, church involvement, and serving in the community or around the globe.
