Prior to a career in Cyber Security Sales Brad served as a Security Architect for a leading DoD Joint program and completed a Master of Forensic Science degree at The George Washington University.

“I really get great satisfaction in managing the art of sales but relying on the science. Sales is a process driven by passion and motivation tempered by metrics. I see the need for sales coaching at both the Rep and Manager levels as enduring growth and success are a result of culture. As a seller of risk management, I had to learn to invert the traditional value proposition conversation to focus my clients on risk as the driver. When I began to coach my teams in this new approach our results improved dramatically. It is said nothing happens in Business until someone sells something and a culture that delivers sustainable revenue growth is the greatest Key Performance Indicator relating to the health of a business.”
