Brad focuses on building long-term relationships, carefully studying industry trends, and helping both companies and individuals find the right fit for their needs. I have found working with Brad to be extremely helpful in my career planning, and always appreciate their professionalism and expertise. Through the process of planning and executing a complex international career move for myself and my family, we spent many hours together working through details. They were patient, supportive and never tried to pressure us into something we were not comfortable with. I can recommend without hesitation working with Brad and the broader international Proco Commodities network.
