never boring, sometimes amusing and even a little frustrating at times.
While a natural born leader and with the out- ward appearance and sometimes manner of a ‘tough nut’, Brad has not only a soft side, once you can find it, but, most im- portantly, he has always had honesty, integrity and goodwill at the forefront
of everything he does, in his business life and his personal life.
I wish him well in his future endeavours.
I know he’s accept- ed a Board position at D’Orsogna and may con- sider other offers.
I wish him well in his re- tirement, albeit he’s never been the retiring type, so he’ll have some work to do.
