Meet Your District Governor 2018-19 – Brian Barstead

A lifelong resident of Central Illinois, Brian was born in Lincoln, and his family moved to Springfield soon thereafter. Brian was educated in Springfield Public Schools and graduated from Springfield High in 1976. Raised by a single mother, Brian graduated from Illinois State University with two bachelors’ degrees in Biology and Medical Technology in 1981. After working in a clinical lab for two years, Brian met his wife Nancy and they were married in 1983. Nancy is a microbiologist with the Illinois State Department of Public Health.

Brian obtained an MBA with a Finance and Marketing emphasis from the University of Illinois at Springfield (formerly known as Sangamon State) in 1986 and changed careers. Brian is a Certified Financial Planner Franchise owner with Ameriprise Financial and has been with the company since 1987. Brian helps clients with financial planning, investments, retirement planning and estate planning. During his tenure he spent nearly 18 years in management with the company.

Brian joined the Rotary Club of Springfield Sunrise in September of 1990 and has served in various club roles including Club President. He also has served at the district level on District Conference planning committees, as District Treasurer and Assistant Governor. Brian has served on the board of the Lincoln Memorial Garden in Springfield and plays bass clarinet, announces and serves as volunteer marketing director with the Springfield Municipal Band. For his community efforts outside of Rotary, Brian received the John Giavaras Community Service Award from District 6460.

Brian and his wife Nancy currently reside in Rochester, Illinois and they have one son, Alex, who works in digital marketing in Seattle, WA. They also have a West Highland Terrier, Lucy, who was introduced to their family when Brian emceed a District Conference breakfast in 2006. Lucy was bred by a Past District Governor (PDG) from Mississippi, who subsequently passed away and whose widow later became a District Governor herself. So, technically, Lucy is a “Roterrierian”. Brian is a multiple Paul Harris Fellow and a Paul Harris Society member.
