Senior Business Advisor
Brian Kenet, MBA, is a senior business advisor at Anchin who advises architecture, engineering, environmental, and construction (A/E/C) firms on growth, transition, and exit strategies.
Brian came to Anchin after 15 years as a consulting principal at a boutique financial advisory firm, where he advised many dozens of prominent A/E/C clients to complete successful M&A transactions – both on the ‘sell’ and ‘buy’ side, along with advising them on the entire spectrum of topics related to growth and transition, valuation, succession and leadership development, operations benchmarking and performance improvement.
Throughout his career, Brian has excelled at assisting clients on strategic acquisitions, helping these firms spark organic growth, while bringing in new, entrepreneurial leadership talent into the firm. His experience working on successful talent retention strategies and helping firms plan for the next generation is second to none.
Brian taught popular Professional Practice courses as a faculty member at Harvard Graduate School of Design for ten years, and more recently at Yale School of Architecture and Columbia Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation. He continues to return to Harvard and Yale annually as a guest lecturer. Brian received his Bachelor’s Degree from Harvard College and his MBA from Pace University.
