Brad has extensive experience facilitating senior executive teams to achieve key organizational results. In one case, Valassis, the nation’s largest direct mail marketing firm, achieved successful integration of their IT department after a major acquisition. This accomplishment occurred in a record-setting four-month timeframe with additional improvements in service levels and the delivery of high-quality, new development projects on-time and below budget. In another case, Brad helped the American Heart Association’s Western States Affiliate obtain dramatic improvement in their key results relative to both revenue enhancement and employee engagement. In one year, this affiliate went from 8th of 9 affiliates to first in revenue generation. In employee engagement, as measured by their climate survey and the percentage of employees who strongly agree with the engagement factors, they went from 6th to first!
