Brian Klansky is Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing with U.S. Energy Group

Education: SUNY Albany (Go Great Danes!)
First job outside of real estate: This one – why am I still hired?
First job in real estate or allied field: Now I am getting paranoid.
What do you do now and what are you planning for the future? Run sales and marketing, grow the company, and save the planet.
How do you unwind from a busy day in real estate? By playing with my insane 6 & 10-year-old boys. Also an avid tennis player and Crossfit.
Favorite book or author: Ayn Rand – “Atlas Shrugged” or “The Fountainhead”
Favorite movie: “Airplane” or anything with Leslie Nielson, Mel Brooks, or Monty Python.
Last song you purchased/downloaded? “Royals” because my kids asked for it. No idea what she is talking about. This song makes no sense.
One word to describe your work environment: Antidisestablishmentarianism—because it’s a long word
Rules to live by in business: Be honest. Don’t be afraid of tough conversations. People are all that matters.
If you could invite one person to dinner (living or dead) who would it be and where would you go? My wife – she is really hot and funny—or John Lennon (it’s a toss up.) Just to hang with a Beatle. We would go to Paul’s house and make fun of that “Silly Little Love Song” song.
What is your dream job? This one – if I still have it!
