Brian P. Michaud, CLTC


Brian started Encompass Group in 2008. Before that, he owed and operated a construction company for 17 years. The economic downturn in 2007 and 2008 lead to him closing that business.

When he started Encompass Group, he worked with business owners on enhancing their employee benefits. As the relationship between Brian and the business owner grew, he found that, just about all of them, had the same issues (many of which he had when he was running the construction company). Regardless of their industry, their issues were VERY similar. They were working IN their business, not ON their business.

Since 2010, Brian has been working with business owners sharing with them proven strategies that help them run more smoothly, make them more efficient and preparing for them to exit.
