His duties and responsibilities included the oversight and management of various design professionals, general contractors and construction trade professionals, and coordination of legal representation for securing project approvals and permitting though governing authorities.


Brad joined Thomas English Retail Real Estate in 2015 as the Director of Planning and Entitlements where he continues to apply his specific knowledge and experience to the benefit of our retail clients ensuring their unique projects are properly guided from initial planning through the entitlement process and smoothly transitioned from concept to construction.
