Brio Financial Group Announces Appointment of Michael Losch as Chief Operating Officer as Firm Continues to Experience Rapid Growth

SOMERVILLE, NJ--(Marketwired - Feb 14, 2017) - Brio Financial Group (BFG) today announced that Michael Losch has joined the Brio Financial Group as its Chief Operating Officer and will report directly to David Briones, Founder and Managing Member of Brio Financial Group based in Somerville, NJ, with satellite offices in New York, New York and Dallas, Texas.

Mr. Briones said, "Brio's business has grown to the point where bringing an executive with Mike's experience on board is what we need to manage our growth successfully for our growing client list. The world of accounting and finance can be overwhelming for companies not equipped to deal with it and the Brio Financial Group is just the kind of entity that can work for smaller companies in the most cost effective manner."

This is a newly created position within the Brio Financial Group as its business has grown to the point where it is important to build out its executive team with experienced professionals in the accounting and finance fields. Brio Financial Group provides hands on accounting and finance services to both public and private companies which are either early stage, seeking investments to get to the next level and/or requires support in a turnaround effort. Many businesses do not have access to the kind of higher level accounting and financial expertise Brio provides for a variety of reasons. Brio provides a solution to enable businesses to have the benefit of a top level professional accounting and finance team, but at a price point that is affordable.

"I could not be more excited than to be joining the Brio team. Their professionalism and cost effective business model is exactly the kind of platform that is needed in the marketplace to assist our clients to meet their business goals," said Mike Losch.
