That same year, Brian became an intern with “College Works Painting”, an organization designed to give students real-world experience in leadership and business management.
Brian contributed significantly to the growth of the Illinois branch of CWP and was promoted a few years later and served as the Vice President of the Illinois branch for two years.
Seeking a new challenge, Brian Moaddeli then moved to San Diego, California where he took over the existing College Works Painting branch based there. Since starting at CWP San Diego, the branch has quadrupled in revenue. with a reach extending to Marin County and across eight colleges and universities. Brian served as communications chair on the board of the Entrepreneurs Organization, a group dedicated to engaging and educating leading entrepreneurs.

Brian's College Works Painting divisions contribute to various charities, including Augie’s Quest, to which $5 from each job is contributed, Make a Wish Foundation, and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Brian has shown that he is very motivated by helping young entrepreneurs reach their career goals. He's done this by training hundreds of college students on how to successfully run businesses by giving them the opportunity to do just that. He runs two of those organizations, one in NorCal and one in the San Diego area. His business has more than quadrupled in the last 4 years and this year has been his best year for both employee retention and customer satisfaction.
