Brian Israel
Practice Development Leader

Dixon Hughes Goodman LLP

Brian Israel’s experience in corporate banking, operations management, credit, investment banking and accounting positions him well for working with entrepreneurs. What’s more, Israel has established a large network of connections throughout his professional career, which he puts to use for his clients. When the recession started in 2008, Israel knew many CFOs and controllers who were losing their jobs. To help them during this difficult time, he worked with his network of CEOs to link hundreds of CFOs and controllers with growing firms. During his time at Loyola University, Israel was a member of the Beta Gamma Sigma business honor society while simultaneously serving as a member of his Air Force class. He says his parents’ strong work ethic inspired the drive and motivation that got him where he is today.
