Bryan Putnam is a native of Bay Village, Ohio. He earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the Fisher School of Business at The Ohio State University. Bryan started his career in 1996 as an auditor at Hausser & Taylor LLP, Ohio’s largest regional accounting firm. He held positions of increasing responsibility with the firm and developed broad experience providing tax, audit, and accounting services for a wide array of industries.
In March 2001, Bryan joined the Douglas Allred Company as Controller, overseeing the day-to-day operations of the accounting department. In October 2011, Bryan was promoted to the position of Chief Financial Officer. In this role, Bryan reports directly to the President & CEO and to the Executive Vice President. Bryan is a primary advisor and decision-maker on company financial matters including dispositions; acquisitions; permanent, construction and bridge financing; and debt restructuring. He also has broad-ranging oversight on administrative operations.
In addition, Bryan is responsible for supervising the firm’s accounting operations, including tax compliance, treasury management, risk management, and payroll and benefits administration. Bryan feels fortunate to work for a family-owned and managed company, where the leadership is very accessible and the decision-making process is far more streamlined than the bureaucracies at larger organizations.
An avid sports fan, Bryan enjoys following his Ohio State Buckeyes, as well as the San Diego Chargers and Padres. Being the father of young triplets keeps Bryan and his wife on their toes, participating in school functions and taking the kids to their tee ball and soccer games. The family resides in North San Diego County and feels it’s one of the greatest places to live.
