Brian Toolan

As co-founder and CEO, Brian leads the TPC Interactive team. The inspiration for TPC came when he faced his own challenges researching house plans and home design ideas online. The result was a commitment to creating a digital media platform in the housing sector. Currently, TPC operates theplancollection.com and houseplans.info.


Brian has a strong background in media and online consumer services. He was president and publisher at Creative Homeowner where he led and managed all publication-related operations and new media initiatives for this family-controlled company then publicly owned subsidiary of Courier Corporation. He joined in 2002 initially as vice president of business development to map out a new business strategy and implement a reorganization of its operations.


In addition to his business operations experience, Brian has been an active private equity investor and is currently a partner at Araquot Partners. Prior to TPC Interactive, he was a managing director at Crystal Ridge Partners. Brian began his private equity career at J.P. Morgan Partners and its predecessor, Chase Capital Partners, where he focused on buyouts and growth equity opportunities in the consumer and healthcare markets.


Given his operational and investing background, Brian has been quoted in or written for a number of journals and media sites, including The Wall Street Journal and Website Magazine. He is a regular contributor to The Plan Collection’s blog.
