Brendan was born and raised in Southern California. After earning his degree from the University of California Irvine, Brendan began working for a large mortgage banking company. Brendan spent over 20 years in the mortgage service industry where he eventually advanced to a position in senior management for one of the nation’s largest property preservation companies.Unfortunately the company would be sold to a privately held company based in another state that would subsequently shut down all of the California operations and laying off all of its employees.
Brendan’s desire to remain in Southern California and not wanting to rejoin Corporate America led him to investigate franchise opportunities. Brendan spent several months reviewing a handful of concepts and eventually chose ShelfGenie. ShelGenie’s strategic growth plans for California markets along with the customer oriented business model appealed most to Brendan making it the obvious choice for his new venture.
