Brian’s first career was as a teacher. He taught social studies at William Morton Collegiate in Gladstone. Helping kids learn and reach their potential motivates him still.
While at university, Brian met Esther Johnson at a basketball game at U of W. They married in 1989. Two daughters followed, Quinn and Shawn.
A new career beckoned. Brian started a financial services company in 1980 . It grew into Pallister Financial, located on the main street in Portage. Expanding over the years, Brian renovated a heritage building with local materials sourced from the Portage area.
