Brian Beal has decades of successful entrepreneurial experience under his belt. He started working his first business at the age of 18 when entering the commercial barter industry. Over the next 26 years, he built and helped to develop exchanges throughout the country. Brian’s love of business has led to side ventures in multiple industries as well. In 2017, he and Natasha purchased The Deer Valley Times. Finally, after building his last barter exchange into a national leader in the barter industry, Brian retired in December 2018 to work full time with his wife in their now blossoming newspaper business. In his free time, Brian likes to rock climb, camp, and travel—all adventures that include his business and life partner, Natasha, and their family.
