Prior to Generational Wealth Advisors, Brent’s background includes experience in strategic marketing, executive management, and investor relations in the semiconductor and equipment manufacturing industries. He was an owner and member of the board of directors for CSCI, a successful manufacturer of air-cooled heat exchangers for the natural gas industry and was instrumental in the management buyout of the company.
