With a degree from Western Washington University in public relations Brad has kept his focus on the outdoor recreation industry throughout his career. Previous experiences in ski area marketing, outdoor retail and most recently owning three tourism based companies in Oregon, Brad brings many years of experience to Big Sky. Understanding the challenges of the tourism economy as well as the cash flow cycles in a resort community are all too familiar. At the same time, Brad’s mantra of “being of service” and “getting shit done” have been hallmarks of his career. In his new leadership role at the Big Sky Chamber of Commerce and Visit Big Sky, Brad is focused on community engagement and facilitating meaningful problem solving for the community as well as the businesses that make up the Big Sky economy. Brad’s favorite activity is working with business owners and supporting them and their businesses. “So often a business owner is alone and doesn’t have a resource just to talk things out. I hope in my new role I can be a friend, an advocate and a sounding board to our business community”.
Brad lives in Big Sky with his wife Babs and their two teenage kids, Piper and Riley.
