Among other accomplishments, he led an effort to develop and obtain local, state, and federal support for a Medicaid demonstration waiver that resulted in 36,000 uninsured adults obtaining Medicaid coverage one year prior to the State of Ohio expanding Medicaid in 2014.

John served as State Medicaid Director under Ohio Governor Ted Strickland and administered the program covering more than 2 million Ohioans with a budget of over $12 billion dollars annually. Under John’s leadership, the program successfully expanded coverage for pregnant women, children, and persons with disabilities.

As General Manager of Equity Office Properties Trust, based in Chicago and one of the nation’s largest real estate investment trusts with a total capitalization of $27 billion, Brian was responsible for leading and managing a 1.3 million square foot office tower in Cleveland’s Central Business District.
