“One Minute With…” Brian Mallett, Senior Accountant

“One Minute With…” Brian Mallett, Senior Accountant

Brian Mallett is Senior Accountant at Core Investments, Inc. He became a staff accountant in August 2017.

Brian, what did you do before Core?

My last job was as at District Management Group. I was a staff accountant for a consulting company that did work with school districts around the country. It was a small company, and there were only two of us in the accounting department, the controller and myself. I did a lot of work that is similar to what I did here at Core when I first started as a Staff Accountant, but Core has given me great opportunities to learn and grow in my career that weren’t made available to me at my previous job.  

Where did you go to school?

Suffolk University. I got a business degree with a focus on accounting.

And where did you grow up?

Mansfield, Massachusetts. I lived in Norwood for a couple of months after I was born but we moved to Mansfield shortly after and I spent my early years there. I went to Mansfield High School and graduated in 2005.

Where do you live now?

In Dorchester.

 

What do you do to have fun or outside work?

I’m a big golfer. I enjoy golf because it gets me outside with friends, which I find to be a great way to spend weekends in the spring-summer-fall. I play at least once a week, sometimes two or three if I can. My family has always gone to Falmouth, so I spend most weekends down there in the summer where we spend a lot of time with friends and family. My ideal day is to play a round of golf with some good friends early in the morning then meet up with the family on the beach after for a nice nap by the ocean. Just going over the bridge is relaxing. You tend to forget about whatever is going on back here.

What’s a favorite place of yours in Boston?

Good question. I don’t go out too much anymore. I guess Jamaica Plain. My folks grew up over there, and there are a lot of restaurants I like to go back to like Costello’s and the Galway House. Adams Village in Dorchester is one of my favorite areas as well. We really enjoy going out to dinner at Molinari’s, a nice little Italian restaurant in that area. I go to the M Street beach a decent amount in the summer. We have two dogs at home that keep us pretty busy, both rescues. They’re great dogs. 

Anything new in your life?

I got engaged last November to my fiancee Kierstin. We plan to get married next June in New Hampshire.
