DeviceTalks, MassDevice, Medical Design & Outsourcing
Publisher, Co-Founder
Brian grew up in the medical devices industry -- as a child, he and his older brother used the surgical staplers his father sold for U.S. Surgical Corp. as toy guns. One episode involving about $10,000 worth of surgical staples earned him an early lesson about medical technology and its impact on people's lives. While pursuing his master’s degree in business and economics journalism from Boston University, Brian covered the 2004 Democratic National Convention in Boston for The Associated Press. He worked as a reporter for The Eagle-Tribune, covering business and economics , local government and crime in the Merrimack Valley. Brian conceived the idea for MassDevice.com in 2007 and launched the publication in March 2009 with Brad Perriello. As publisher, he has spearheaded the growth of the publication from 0 to 75,000 readers each month and led the company to profitability in 2011, just two years after launch.
