Gordon Bryan – Broker Gordon Bryan Suspended from Securities Industry | Goodman & Nekvasil, P.A. May Recover Investor Losses
Gordon Bryan a/k/a Gordon Leonard Bryan is a licensed broker with Ameriprise Financial Services. Gordon Bryan was previously licensed broker with Wells Fargo. According to Gordon Bryan’s BrokerCheck Report, Gordon Bryan was suspended for two months and fined $5,000 in April 2021.
According to FINRA Allegations:
Bryan consented to the sanctions and to the entry of findings that he engaged in an outside business activity (OBA) without providing prior written notice to his member firm and subsequently exceeded the scope of his disclosed involvement in that OBA. The findings stated that Bryan formed a limited liability company with other individuals, three of whom were Bryan’s firm clients, to purchase and develop a local shopping center. Bryan did not provide written notice to the firm of the company until a month later. In addition, Bryan did not disclose that firm clients co-owned the company until after its purchase of the shopping center. After the firm made inquiries about this disclosure, Bryan stated that he would not play a role in the company’s operations. However, Bryan continued to engage in operational activities for the company, including marketing shopping center space to tenants, negotiating lease terms, and communicating with commercial lenders. In addition, Bryan stated that he would transfer his ownership interest in the company to his wife. Although Bryan subsequently attested that the company remained one of his OBAs on a compliance questionnaire, he described it as a passive real estate business, rather than one in which he engaged in operational activity. In addition, Bryan stated inaccurately that his wife had become a partner in the company, even though he did not transfer his partnership interest to her until later.
