Our lead sales guy owes his success to the ancient art of Jedi mind-trickery. Born and raised in the heart of Silicon Valley, Brian came to Creative Electron after a successful career in the semiconductor industry. He brings decades of experience in advertising and failure analysis. A true Silicon Valley native, Brian’s father, Burt Wagner, is the founder of B&G Technologies, a company that revolutionized the field of destructive testing of electronic components. Brian grew up in Burt's machine shop sweeping the floors while watching closely as companies like Fairchild, HP, Intel, and others developed from startups to giants. Brian spends most days and nights on the phone harassing customers or on a surfboard riding the beautiful waves of Santa Cruz.
