Brooks joined the Innisfree team as Chief Financial Officer in 2011, bringing with him an extensive background in corporate and commercial real estate finance. 

He began his professional career in 1998 with Zions Bank’s National Real Estate Group and was later promoted to Director of Business Development. Brooks also worked as a publishing securities analyst with the investment banking firm FBR Capital, where he covered high-yield bonds and entertainment/leisure equities. 

He holds a B.S. in Finance from the University of Utah and an MBA with an emphasis in finance and corporate accounting from the University of Rochester. 

Curious by nature, Brooks never sits around and is always up for an adventure.  He has developed a love of aviation and looks for any excuse to fly his Beechcraft Bonanza.  

A self-professed ‘deal junkie,’ Brooks loves meeting with industry leaders and making deals that change lives through career growth and development. Between acquisitions, development, and financing, he has orchestrated more than a half billion dollars in transaction volume since joining Innisfree, which has resulted in 500% growth in managed revenue over the same period. 

Perhaps the ultimate adventure, Brooks has been married to his wife, Jessica, for more than 25 years. They share five children and love boating, beaching, surfing, snow skiing and traveling together
