Former Chairman and President of On Deck Capital which is currently in the Inc 500 and Forbes 100 Companies to Watch List
Brad was great. His advice was direct and actionable. I would definitely speak with him again.
I worked with Brad when he ran Irwin Union Bank and saw firsthand his strong leadership. He created a unique leadership program that was a think tank for new initiatives. He was way ahead of his time creating a senior management team that was virtual - geography was not a limiting factor is attracting the best talent. Brad set a vision and ensured that all his employees were aligned and bought in. He is resilient and persists despite adversity.
Brad is a strategic leader who coaches a team to successfully execute the vision. He empowers his team by providing them with the framework for accomplishing organizational goals.
Brad excels in a leadership role. He is a motivator and an innovator who is not afraid of taking new direction. I have enjoyed being on Brad's team and working toward a renewed organization. I highly recommend Brad.
