In this episode, we dive into the life and adventures of Fresno's very own Brian Furrow, the sales manager with nearly a decade of experience under his belt. Born and raised in Fresno, Brian's passion for the outdoors has been a driving force throughout his life. Let's uncover his journey, from growing up with a white-water rafting legacy to becoming an integral part of the Field Van team.Brian's connection with the great outdoors began in his childhood, thanks to his father's ownership of Kings-River Expeditions, a reputable white-water rafting company nestled in the heart of the Central Valley. Raised amidst nature's bounty, Brian's love for Fresno and its proximity to breathtaking destinations such as The Sierras, the coast, and the desert only deepened over the years.
Jonny's first encounter with Brian took place at a sporting-goods store, where he held the position of co-manager alongside Jonny's cousin. Brian's profound passion for the outdoors led him to rise to the role of assistant marketing director at China Peak Ski Resort. Fate brought Jonny and Brian back together at the lively "Pray for Snow'' party hosted at Sequoia Brewing. During this reunion, Jonny pitched the idea of Brian joining the Field Van team, giving him the opportunity to fully immerse himself in his beloved outdoors.
Brian's journey at Field Van was not without challenges. While he brought a wealth of outdoor expertise to the table, mastering the art of van builds was a learning curve. Nonetheless, Brian's determination and dedication paid off, and he quickly transformed into an expert guide, helping customers actualize their dream vans.
Field Van's influence extends well beyond business hours for Brian. Together with his wife and kids, he embraces the van life wholeheartedly. His van received the nickname "Daddy Van" from his kids. This mobile haven opens doors to exciting destinations that were once thought impossible with young children, like the snowy mountains during winter.
