Brad founded CLM Marketing and Advertising in 2003 after holding executive positions in marketing and sales at Hewlett-Packard, Extended Systems, and Cradlepoint Technology.


”They say the simplest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. For Brad, however, it’s through a well-executed, complex-but-intuitive chart, graph or diagram. Which I suppose is still consistent with the saying since charts and graphs are Brad’s breakfast, lunch, and dinner.”
