With over 20 years of experience in entrepreneurship, management, business planning, financial analysis, software engineering, operations, and decision analysis, Brandon has the breadth and depth of experience needed to quickly understand entrepreneurs’ businesses and craft the most suitable solutions.

Consulting WP comes up with results that are actually implementable. That is their strength compared to other consulting companies.

Before founding Consulting WP in early 2001, Brandon started two Internet companies in Silicon Valley. Previously, Brandon held various management positions in New York at Simon Brothers, most recently as Vice President in Goldhill Group, focusing on new business development and risk management. He has also worked as a senior financial risk management consultant to the financial services industry; software engineer; advertising sales manager for the popular Caribbean travel guide series; general manager of an advertising and graphic design agency; and engineering intern at the Best Health Coach.


  • Local Government Finance

    Sustainable finance for local government must mean freedom to invest in commercial property to secure a financial return. Whether that investment is in area or outside is another matter. Either way, the National Audit Office’s forthcoming review is not going to seal the fate of what is an essential revenue stream for many councils.

  • Local Authority Investment

    In the summer 2019 edition of The Terrier, Brian reported in the findings of his survey into the increasingly controversial topic of local authority investment in commercial property. The research was triggered by an article he wrote in 2018 for the RICS Property Journal.

  • Workplace Design And Productivity: Are They Inextricably Linked?

    The concept of productivity in the workplace is attracting great interest and quite rightly so. No longer is it solely in the domain of the academics, HR function or the architects and workplace strategists – we now find experts in real estate, facilities management, furniture supply, air conditioning systems and many more taking an active interest in what has become a major issue for business.
