As humans have evolved, the complexity of their problems has progressed. Today, the world is more complicated than ever before.

Bryan Paarmann, now Senior Vice President at Brosnan Risk Consultants, has served in some very significant senior security positions. Inspired by his father, who was also an FBI agent and World War II veteran, he attended the United States Military Academy at West Point and served as an Infantry Officer in the US Army, completing peacetime and combat assignments at home and abroad.

Among his many leadership positions, Bryan Paarmann oversaw the entirety of the FBI’s overseas endeavors as a part of the FBI’s International Program.

Bryan Paarmann applied the leadership, team-building, cross-cultural communication, and collaboration skills he had learned in this role and previous leadership assignments to his next position: leader of the New York Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF). The New York JTTF is the largest, oldest, and one of the most active JTTF’s of the 102 nationwide. Bryan Paarmann says being appointed as the FBI Special Agent in Charge of the New York Office Counterrorism Division and the NY JTTF in 2017 was a highlight of his three-decade career.
Throughout his career, Bryan Paarmann has made education a priority.
