testimonials

Brad is an exceptionally unique guy. He is intensely driven to find winning combinations of emerging technology and practical use cases to drive growth. Brad brings a strong technical knowledge base and hands-on product leaderships to his work. He is a strong mentor for his team and a collaborator across an organization. He is very creative and focused with an ever present positive attitude. If he says he is going to deliver, he will. One of a very small number of folks I can sincerely say I would hire or go to work for in a minute if the opportunity arose.
JON LINTVET, CMO @ ARI
What a pleasure it has been to work with Brad. His innovative mind coupled with his dedication to excellence and attention to detail put him in a league of his own. Brad is a natural born leader and business man. He has one of the most positively contagious attitudes that shines when he is giving presentations, demoing products or just answering general questions. He is dependable and has been the nucleus to many great things in product development and ARI's product offerings as a whole. Brad's unique ability to be able to work with C Level Executives and be the same guy who is training the whole sales team on the next new product for market is something that I personally have admired in Brad.
SHANNON HELD, ACCOUNT EXEC @ ARI
Brad recently delivered a guest lecture in my undergraduate Operations Management class on lean principles. Not only was he highly prepared in terms of content, he delivered a powerful presentation that students loved. Brad pays great attention to detail, has a remarkable grasp on concepts and knows how to deliver. Brad presented lean applications in software development, a unique area for general business students. He has great presentation skills, is clear and concise and can market himself or a product well. Additionally, he has enthusiasm, passion for what he does and a great sense of humor. Not only was he an engaging speaker, but he simplified complex ideas into simple easy to understand concepts for students and really enhanced the lecture with humor. Brad is a born teacher and has a fantastic attitude.

At ARI I had the pleasure of working alongside Brad and personally witnessing his career growth. Brad possesses a strong work ethic and a unique ability to fit the business and technology together in a way that drives value for his customers and his company.
