Brad has extensive experience in the environmental, health, and safety (EHS) fields of manufacturing and agriculture. In addition to EHS, his roles in manufacturing have included production management, maintenance, quality, and continuous improvement.
In addition to working in the manufacturing sector, he is a firefighter, instructor, and emergency medical responder, advocates for the local environment as a board manager for the Shell Rock River Watershed District, is a member of the Minnesota Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management’s Regional Review Committee for the SE region, and is active in the Albert Lea community.
His passion is continuous improvement, which is his focus in EHS projects. Seeing companies protect their employees, their brand, and their investment, as well as utilizing improvement projects to cut costs while increasing revenues is a goal with every project. Reducing a company’s energy and resource usage, finding safe alternatives to hazardous chemicals, and reducing waste from their processes is a win/win/win scenario for business, the community, consumers, and the environment.
Brad lives in Albert Lea on beautiful Fountain Lake, and enjoys spending time with his wife, Lindsay, and children, as well as his two grandchildren. He also enjoys being outdoors, whether it’s fishing, hiking, biking, or being on the lake and is enjoying learning to SCUBA dive. He’s an enthusiastic advocate for the Albert Lea area, and enjoys challenging the status quo.
