I have a table with the following data

lrbrister            Grant Insurance
gmello              Zuereg Insurance
lrbrister            Harrison Insurance

I'm trying to do a select so I get this. (There will be upwards of 50 usernames)

username          Client

You need to query something like below.
SELECT 
	UserName,
	STUFF((SELECT '|' + Client FROM CSV AS B
	 WHERE A.UserName = B.UserName
	 FOR XML PATH ('')),1,1,'') Clients
FROM CSV AS A
GROUP BY UserName

Thanks.
This is my final solution


; WITH cte (AE,Client) AS
(
      SELECT CVT.[Account Executive] AE,
                  C.[Client Name] Client
      FROM dbo.ClientVisitTracking CVT
      LEFT JOIN Client C ON CVT.[Client ID] = C.[Client ID]
      GROUP BY cvt.[Account Executive], C.[Client Name]

)
SELECT AE,
      STUFF((SELECT '|' + Client FROM cte AS B
       WHERE A.AE = B.AE
       FOR XML PATH ('')),1,1,'') Clients
FROM cte AS A
GROUP BY AE
