Meet the Founder

Brian Brassell began his career as an insurance agent with Bankers Life and Casualty after graduating from the Pennsylvania State University in 2001. Upon earning the Certified Senior Advisor (CSA) designation in 2004, he left the company in the hope of forming his own business. In 2006, Brian founded Senior Advising Services, an independent life, health, and annuity insurance brokerage focused on risk management and insurance solutions for retirees.

2016 proved to be a transitional year for Senior Advising Services. Following a decade of working exclusively on the insurance side of retirement planning, Brian made the decision to add investment planning and financial management to the company's array of services. After passing FINRA's Series 65 securities exam, Brian partnered with Brookstone Capital Management as an Investment Advisor Representative. Through this new relationship with Brookstone, Senior Advising Services has become a comprehensive retirement planning firm, and Brian now spends his days designing and managing financial plans for his pre and post-retirement clients.

Family is now, and always has been, the driving force in Brian's life. His work ethic, values, and beliefs come from his parents, Barb and Bill, who never once stopped believing in him. He currently lives in the Palmyra area with his wife and Sunday School sweetheart, Elizabeth, and their two sons, Cayden and Barrett. In his free time, Brian enjoys spending time with his family, wrestling with his boys, reading, and vacationing to the beach or his in-laws cottage in Ontario, Canada.
