Brian Hutchinson, Boardmember, De Novo - Helping The Marginalized & Homeless

Brian Hutchinson


I was born into a car-loving family, so you might say cars are “in my genes”. I was interested in driving before I ever knew “walking” was a thing! At age 18, I started my first part-time business, detailing cars. While working in Retail/Operations Management for 10 years, cars were always my main passion.

In 2013, I left the retail management world to devote my efforts full-time to the automotive detail business, which included restoring, detailing and managing private collections of exotic motorcars. In 2014, my wife Kelsey and I both came to work for the automotive side of Robert Ober’s companies and knew we had found a perfect fit!

I was raised with both parents living a life of service and giving to others: my father serving 14 years in the United States Air Force and my mother as a nurse. They taught me, “Only by giving are you able to receive more than you already have.” In 2013, I met Robert Ober, whose generous attitude forever changed my life, showing me further that “it is more blessed to give than to receive”. I wholeheartedly believe that the more we live by helping others first—and focus on adding value to other peoples’ lives—the more abundance flows our way. It’s a win-win all the way around!
