Bryan Feller has served as the president of NCF of California since 2014 where he has stewarded the growth of the organization from $20 million to $100 million+ in annual gifts. Prior to NCF, Bryan got his undergrad in theology, and later, an MBA. Through some early mentors, he found he had a gift for marking and strategy – and he was instrumental in leading a handful of companies to double-digit growth and led one company to make the Inc. 500 list of fastest-growing companies – twice. In 2005, he started a consulting firm focused on marketing strategy and sales team effectiveness. In his role as a consultant and coach, Bryan has worked with nearly 70 organizations, ranging from start-ups to the Fortune 500. His clients included such companies as Johnson & Johnson, United Airlines, Capital One, and Bauch & Lomb.
Bryan has served as an adjunct faculty member at California Baptist University teaching business ethics. He is also a passionate outdoorsman and a Wilderness First Responder. He hikes up to 400+ miles a year in the local mountains and in the High Sierras. He is also a rock climber, CrossFitter, and a champion of fitness after 50. With his good friend Bob Fry, Bryan co-hosts “The Bob & Bryan Show”, a weekly webcast focused on tax-smart giving strategies.
Bryan married his high school sweetheart, Becky, 30+ years ago. They are now “empty-nesters” with two married children, Westley and Courtney, and a grandbaby, Conrad.
