Brian Deal is the Regional Director of Lincoln Financial Advisors/Sagemark Consulting in Ohio.
Prior to joining Lincoln Financial Advisors/Sagemark, Brian managed two branches for a major investment and insurance firm in the Cleveland and Columbus region. Before deciding to make the move to being closer to client relationships, he spent the majority of his career as a financial services wholesaler with top tier firms including Travelers Life & Annuity, MetLife Investors, Legg Mason and Clearbridge Advisors.
Brian is a native of San Diego, California, but his career has allowed him the opportunity to live in many different parts of the country. After graduating from the University of Arizona with a degree in Business and Technical Spanish, he’s lived in Tennessee, Illinois and Connecticut. Ultimately, he chose to settle in Ohio “for the quality of life and the fine people.”
Outside of work, Brian enjoys travel and exploring new cultures. Additionally, he is very involved with the Central Ohio Chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and several other charities.
