DESCRIPTION:
As a native Floridian, Brian Avery attended the University of West Florida and earned a Post-Graduate Baccalaureate Certificate in industrial engineering and a master’s degree in hospitality management. He also recently completed coursework for his Ph.D. and teaches at the Rosen College of Hospitality Management.

Avery started his first company in 2007, specializing in inspection/consulting for attractions before expanding into a licensed security agency, forcing the creation of a separate company dedicated to event staffing. After starting and growing Frontline Staffing Solutions, the name was changed to Frontline Event Services. Along with event staffing, the company also provides photo booths, step-and-repeat photo sessions, telepresence robots, aerial and event photography, and a “Selfie Studio”.

“My entrepreneurial journey has included many turns, but I’ve surrounded myself with smart people, and I know that success is not always about money,” said Avery.

“My father overcame many obstacles in his life and I model his perseverance. When I worked for him, he allowed me to help grow his business. Sometimes our visions collided, but his trust in me grew and we did great things together. I still bounce ideas off of him and consider him my best friend.”

Avery is also board vice chair for the Orlando Repertory Theatre and has served for eight years, while continuing to become more involved in the Orlando arts community.
