Brad joined BMO Nesbitt Burns in 2002 after a 17 year career in investment banking in Toronto and London, England.

He also interviews local high school students who have applied to the University of Pennsylvania and is thrilled when they are accepted.
Brad is married to Nathalie, a successful real estate representative and they have a son and daughter and a dog that gets way too much attention. He continues to play hockey, is an avid traveller and a rotisserie baseball enthusiast.
