When Dual Careers Collide

Brian J. Coleman, Associate Broker at Cushman & Wakefield / Pyramid Brokerage Company in Newburgh, NY, attended the National Association of REALTOR®’s Broker Summit in Nashville, TN on April 4, 2018 after NAR® requested his aid in hiring legendary hitmaker, Grammy® winner and producer/songwriter Desmond Child to kick off the event at the Country Music Hall Of Fame. Mr. Child performed 4 of his co-written hits including Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ On A Prayer” and Aerosmith’s “Angel” for over 300 Brokers. He has co-written over 80 Top 40 hits over the past 5 decades. During his keynote address, Mr. Child shared with attendees how he has navigated the rapid pace of change in the music industry through leadership, collaboration, and taking risks while drawing parallels to the real estate industry.

In addition to his real estate career, Brian has worked in the entertainment industry for over 30 years. He is currently Chief Of Staff for Mr. Child’s company Deston Entertainment, Inc., NYSCAR® member for 7 years and a NAR® member for 14 years.
