Connect with Brian Rivers

As CEO and sought-after business consultant, mentor, speaker coach and visionary producer, Brian splits his time between traveling the globe to meet with clients and at Centrifuge headquarters to lead and develop his ever-expanding in-house team.

Prior to launching Centrifuge Media, Inc. (CMI, as we sometimes call it) in 2005, Brian spent substantial time in medical marketing and education. In this prior career, he attended healthcare and life science meetings, which exposed him to underwhelming and disjointed event production throughout the industry. He quickly realized few agencies understood or addressed the unique needs of biotech, pharmaceutical and life science leaders. Upon identifying this gap, Brian recognized and seized the opportunity to fill it. Through his vision, leadership and execution, Centrifuge came to life!

Since its conception, Brian has strategically developed a team to simultaneously provide the highest level of customer service and a cutting-edge approach to event communications, production design and creative solution development.

At the heart of Centrifuge’s year-over-year growth and success is Brian’s steadfast commitment to meeting and exceeding client expectations. As a product of this pursuit, he developed and continues to expand the in-house creative, production, performance and communication strategy capabilities that have transitioned CMI from a primarily audio-visual company to a globally recognized Strategic Event Communications Agency.

As an active philanthropist, Brian and his family are passionate about supporting local charities and encourage volunteerism within the Centrifuge ranks. For the past 10 years, Centrifuge has maintained the title sponsorship of the MeFine Foundation Gala, which raises money to support local families of children experiencing a medical crisis.

Life Outside of Centrifuge:

Brian enjoys spending time with his beautiful wife and two daughters. He enjoys traveling for both work and pleasure, loves to exercise and play golf. He is a coffee and wine connoisseur and has mastered the art of gourmet homemade pizza.
