After learning to fly in high school, Brad earned a BBA in Finance from the University of Georgia - along with his Commercial Pilot license, and instrument and multi-engine land ratings - while also working for Clark Flying Service in Athens, GA. Following graduation he joined Cessna Aircraft Company, where he quickly learned how to meet aggressive growth objectives while continually exceeding customer service expectations. He was almost immediately named District Sales Manager of the Year and the Top Dollar Revenue Producer.
Joining Beech Aircraft Corporation (now part of Textron Aviation) in the early 1980s, Brad rose to become Vice President of the Western Hemisphere. In this position he was responsible for generating half of the company's commercial revenue production. Even during the challenging market conditions precipitated by the economic downturn that began in 2008, he still led his team to meet or exceed revenue targets and Earnings Before Interest, Taxes and Adjustments (EBITA) projections.
