Brad is excited to join the Advisory Board of ASK. For Brad, food allergies hit somewhat close to home, with two of his nephews having severe allergies. Brad and his wife, Margo who is a registered dietitian, live with their two young boys in Glenview, IL. Not surprisingly, the topic of food allergies comes up frequently at school, play-dates, and kid’s activities – which has driven Brad’s desire to help ASK.
Brad brings over 25 years of client and consulting experience building leading brands and delivering profitable growth on his businesses and for his clients. Over the past several years at IRI, Brad has worked with smaller companies, tasked with growing brand awareness and market penetration on limited budgets. Prior to IRI, Brad worked with management consulting firms Prophet and Zyman Group, and in brand management at SC Johnson and Best Foods. A graduate of Georgetown University with a BS in Finance, Brad earned his MBA at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor with a concentration in Marketing and Corporate Strategy.
With his background in growing brands, coupled with his personal experiences, Brad is excited to advise and help expand ASK’s impact in the community.
