About: About Me

About Brian Carp

CEO and Founder


For more than 20 years, I have solved complex business challenges and helped organizations grow. In 2021, I founded Combina Financial LLC, to offer hands-on, personalized, and unbiased financial guidance to early-stage, small and mid-size companies experiencing change. CPA and MBA expertise allow me to bring an innovative, well-rounded approach to the table in support of your company’s next move.

People are my passion, and I believe wholeheartedly that an organization’s strength lies in its culture. My emphasis on relationship building, objectivity, and a complete command of finance differentiate Combina Financial from its competitors. I’m eager to roll up my sleeves and help your organization reach its full potential.

On a personal note, I am a Philadelphia native and located in Swarthmore, PA living with my wife and two children.  I am an avid Eagles fan, having spent 30+ years tailgating in the stadium parking lots.  I enjoy spending time at our cottage in the Finger Lakes fishing, boating, and enjoying the cool nights looking over the lake.
