In 1984, Brian left a major public accounting firm with a partner, Dan Sautner, to start their own practice that would become involved with numerous franchising companies. Realizing an opportunity in the market in Canada they started their own franchise company in 1986 – Padgett Business Services. Shortly thereafter they leveraged this decision by taking over the US operations of Padgett in 1988.
After steady growth of the franchise to over 300 offices, the company was ready to expand further into the Payroll Market with the formation of PayTrak Payroll Services in 1998. Today, Brian oversees the operations of the Canadian companies from his office in Oakville, Ontario.
