Brian Hillsberg

Financial Adviser

While attending the University of Michigan, Brian found himself counseling friends – and often complete strangers – on how to navigate life’s challenges. Realizing his creative ability to help people through pain points turned Brian towards financial planning, and landed him his first job out of college at a small mom-and-pop advisory firm. With the intention of refining his craft, Brian spent the last 15 years working at several larger companies – including PNC Investments and Hartford Funds – before finding a home at Certior Financial.

Brian believes that true planning firms like Certior are unique in an age where the financial industry can often be transactional and robotic. What Brian finds most rewarding is the ability to borrow from all his previous experiences to build relationships and help client’s live their best lives.

Brian and his wife, Lauren enjoy traveling together and feel blessed to have visited more than 18 countries, and starting several humanitarian projects along the way. Brian and Lauren also have a love for animals that includes horseback riding and playing with their dogs, Callie and Freya.
