Brad’s ability to see opportunity and then reposition organizations was well demonstrated when securing worldwide strategic partnerships. His abilities were further evident when he prioritized key initiatives during a recent large enterprise turn-around he orchestrated. I highly recommend Brad Myers in any business pursuits.”
