Brian Ganden

Principal, Employee Benefits Consultant

Brian joined Granville West in 2006 after six years in various roles with a national insurance carrier. He is a relationship-first focused advisor who fosters deep connections and trust with both clients and insurance partners.

Brian’s approach to working with new and existing clients is to match the most effective solution to their culture and intention. He is mindful that in today’s market budgets are not unlimited, so it’s important to deliver programs that are cost effective and efficient. Always thinking ahead, Brian identifies and proposes solutions to “What if” scenarios to help keep clients informed and protected. He’s also more than happy to jump in to resolve issues between clients and insurance providers to make sure the right decision is always made.

Away from work, you can find Brian enjoying time with his supportive wife and three very active children. He coaches their hockey teams, spearheads family dirt biking adventures and enjoys trips back to the Okanagan to spend time with family and friends.
