Operating Partner

Brian Stein


I have spent over 20 years helping companies drive growth and optimize their business. By helping clients strategize and drive execution of ideas, we have been able to leverage a mix of technology, process and organizational change to achieve success.

I am thrilled to be a part of the Exactus team because of the work that we do and the way in which we approach it. When you are working with smart, motivated, good people, it is incredibly empowering. Everyone wants to make a real difference and is willing to do what it takes to have that impact. I know that on every project I am going to have a chance to work with motivated and intelligent people, both from the Exactus team and also our clients, and together we can have a real impact.

During my career I have been fortunate to define and deliver transformation and technology programs for software, insurance, consumer packaged goods, and manufacturing companies, as well as over 45 financial institutions. I previously taught Mobile and Digital Strategy for four years at Kent State University’s School of Digital Science.

I live in Cleveland, Ohio with my wonderful wife Stephanie and my two kids, Brooklyn and Dylan and our dog Lexi. I like spending time at home with our family or being out around town enjoying live music at smaller concert venues. I am also an active board member of a few community and religious organizations and enjoy giving back and supporting those causes.
