Brian Scudamore is a serial entrepreneur and passionate people-person. Known for pioneering the professional junk hauling industry with 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, Brian started out as a scrappy kid in Vancouver, BC, with ambition and a big idea. Since then, he’s adapted the success of his first company to launch three additional brands in the painting, moving, and home-detailing industries, with WOW 1 DAY PAINTING, You Move Me, and Shack Shine. Together, Brian’s companies form O2E Brands, a franchising powerhouse providing business opportunities to aspiring entrepreneurs across North America.
His companies have been in the limelight for decades, on shows including Oprah and CNBC. Brian is a regular contributor to Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, and Inc. Magazine, and his story has been featured in noteworthy publications nationwide. A strong believer in ongoing personal and professional development, Brian regularly attends programs at MIT. If he’s not launching a new brand or coming up with a new, big idea, he’s crossing another 101 Life Goal off his bucket list, biking, or hanging out with his family in Vancouver.
