Traditionally, you find specialists and experts working independently to provide tax and accounting services, pension services, estate and retirement planning services and insurance services. In the changing economic and demographic dynamics coupled with complex and ever-changing tax laws, successful business people and retirees seek a cohesive group working together to deliver well-thought-out solutions to enhance wealth and retirement income. More and more people in their golden years are worried about outliving their retirement assets and losing their hard-earned wealth to market turbulence through no fault of their own. In addition, there is also a crying need for expertise in the area of wealth transfer maximization with minimum estate and inheritance tax using leveraging strategies.
Having worked with numerous clients and understanding their legitimate concerns, EPD members decided to merge their individual practices to deliver boutique solutions in addressing wealth enhancement, efficient wealth transfer, guaranteed retirement income plan and combine with tax-efficient IRA and Pension roll-out for retirement income and/or generational transfer.

Brian J. Harrigan was born on July 29, 1984 in Sacramento, CA. He moved to Gilroy in 1986 when his father accepted a position with Gilroy Veterinary Hospital, which soon became a partnership in the business.
Brian’s roots in Gilroy have stemmed from his family’s long time involvement in the community. Many know him through his parents, Dennis and Renee Harrigan, who have been involved with the Gilroy Garlic Festival, Rotary, Kids Discover Arts, and St. Joseph’s Family Center for years. Brian’s involvement in the community began as a young teen. He volunteered in Garlic Festival Parking and Signs where he and his parents helped raise money for youth sports. In addition to his volunteer work at the Garlic Festival, he also enjoyed doing community service at St Joseph’s Family Center.
Brian attended Palma High School in Salinas, CA where he graduated in 2002. His studies led him to the University of Arizona, where in the fall of 2006 he earned at Bachelors Degree in Business Marketing from the Eller College of Management. Shortly after graduating, he took a position with Health Net of CA and became licensed to sell life and health Insurance. While Brian was laid off in the market crash of 2008, his passion for insurance led him to positions with BEN-E-LECT of Visalia, Pacific Diversified, and Wellpoint Inc. where he managed territories that ranged from South San Francisco to King City. Corporate emphasis in the industry focused on selling product rather than educating clients, which left him frustrated.
Having overcome some medical issues, Brian decided it was best for his family and clients if he worked as a independent broker, with an emphasis on life insurance and employee benefits. This allowed him the flexibility for time with his two son, David and Anthony, and ensured he could offer products that best suited his clients' needs. Brian began working with Hannah Insurance Group in 2014 and was introduced to Robert A. Price of Executive Plan Design shortly after coming aboard. This introduction sparked a passion for advanced financial planning. The same passion he once had for employee benefits, before given changes brought by the Affordable Care Act.
Brian is currently enrolled in CFP courses through Bryant University to advance his career and enhance his depth of knowledge in advanced financial planning. He has become an integral part of Executive Plan Design’s planning process. Brian is an active member and Ambassador for the Gilroy Chamber of Commerce in addition to his volunteer work as an Associate Community Worker at Rebekah Children’s Services. He is also an active member of First Baptist Church in Gilroy. Gilroy is home for Brian and his family. E P D . www.epdins.com . 8339 Church St, Suite 104, Gilroy, CA 95020 .
