Brett teamed up with Marks Group in 2011 after five years as an investment advisor in UBS Financial’s downtown Minneapolis office. A journalism degree from the University of Minnesota makes Brett well suited to co-author most of our Marks Group publications, including our Monthly Market Recap, regular columns in the Star Tribune, and our economic Perspectives & Outlook. Clear communication is also at the heart of Brett’s client relationships. He works with several business owners, and is involved in the management of private foundations, endowments, and profit-sharing plans who have partnered with Marks Group.

Brett grew up in Racine, Wisconsin, working summers in the bindery of his family’s small printing business. His personal resumé includes paid employment as the lead performer in an opera, country club sous chef, and college football beat writer. He is a lifelong soccer player, dedicated Gopher fan, and occasional golfer. Brett lives in Edina with his wife Kristen and their two children, Walter and Genevieve.
