Advice Media announced on January 12, 2021, that we have promoted Bryan McGowan to Chief Operating Officer, in addition to his responsibilities as CFO.
Bryan will be working with the customer-facing and product delivery teams to improve quality, flexibility, and scalability across all of Advice Media’s products and services. His goal is to build the company into a world-class SaaS organization.
Shawn Miele, CEO of Advice Media, said, “Bryan brings a growth mindset to the role of COO. I am excited to watch what happens with the collaboration between Bryan and the rest of the Customer Success and Digital Product Implementation teams. I think this will be a powerful combination that will help us to deliver better and better results for our clients.”
Bryan earned his Electrical Engineering degree from Cornell and began his career at Intel. After returning to Cornell for an MBA in 2010, Bryan spent several years in the MIT/Harvard entrepreneurship community. This included tenure as CFO of Open Water Power, which was acquired by L-3 Systems in 2017.
Bryan and his family moved to Park City, UT, in 2015. Bryan has worked with Advice Media for three years now, first as a consultant, then as CFO. Over that period, he has added tremendous value across every department at Advice Media.
