As part of our getting to know the Assemble Team series, we asked Brad some questions to get to know him better:
1. If you could describe yourself in only three words what would they be
Loyal, benevolent, ambitious
2. If you could have dinner with one historical figure who would it be?
Bill Gates – he is a visionary, an innovator, and above all, a philanthropist. I believe his most critical historical impact has yet to be accomplished.
3. What is your favorite food?
Fajitas, burritos or tacos…basically anything from south of the border.
4. Tell us one thing on your “bucket-list”
I would like to hike the entire Appalachian Trail.
5. What was your favorite class in College?
My favorite class was based around managing innovation. This course focused on the need for a systematic approach to building innovation capabilities and some of the challenges of integrating all the facets of innovation. I believe that innovation is a key component in our lives. How we interact and react to it both as individuals and organizations is critical.
