Default formula to switch last/first name around?

Assuming you ONLY have ast name comma space first name:

=RIGHT(A1,LEN(A1)-FIND(",",A1)-1)&" "&LEFT(A1,FIND(",",A1)-1)

Is there a formula I can copy into say, cell B1, that will change a name in
cell A1 from "Brown, John" to John Brown?

Thanks to all you excel wizards out there!
