Brian Castro Joins CAAB's Board

Capital Area Asset Builders (CAAB) is delighted to announce that Brian Castro has joined CAAB's Board of Directors.

Brian Castro is Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of FundPaaS, Inc. a Funding Platform as a Service that enables businesses of all stages to meet working capital needs by converting their customers into investors. FundPaaS’ technology equips entrepreneurs, small business owners, financial institutions, and funding portals to harness the revolutionary potential of crowdfunding.

Previously Brian served as the Obama Administration’s National Ombudsman and Assistant Administrator for Regulatory Enforcement Fairness at the U.S. Small Business Administration. In that role he worked with 30+ federal agencies, startups, and other small and middle market businesses to eliminate unnecessary red tape and promote access to capital. As a regulator, policy maker, and counsel to businesses, the Administration, Congress, the Judiciary, and FINRA, Brian has participated directly in all phases of the federal regulatory process: from legislative drafting and enactment, to proposed regulation and rule implementation, to government investigation and enforcement action, and, ultimately, to administrative and judicial resolution.

His experience includes nearly two decades as a lawyer counseling clients on legal and compliance issues in highly regulated sectors, and working in the U.S. Senate on a range of economic issues, including the provisions of the JOBS Act of 2012. A Maryland native, Brian earned a B.S. from Cornell University and a J.D. from the Duke University School of Law.
