The transactions we facilitate mean everything to our clients — nothing short of the financial security of their families. The responsibility to provide my best advice is what drives me; and being re-hired the next time they need guidance is the most meaningful validation I could receive.

Brad is an investment banker who spent the majority of his over 40-year career with Wall Street investment banking firms developing unique expertise in serving the corporate finance needs of emerging growth companies.

As a partner at Chessiecap, he oversees projects for clients in a variety of markets with emphasis in telecommunications, information technology and the emerging PropTech industry. His transaction experience includes public and private financings, mergers and acquisitions and financial advisory services. He has also served on the boards of several venture-backed companies.

Prior to joining Chessiecap, Brad held leadership positions at Kaufman Bros., a telecom focused boutique firm in New York. He served as president of the investment banking group of Columbia Capital in Alexandria, Virginia where he leveraged the existing M&A business and began a private placement practice assisting pre-public communications-oriented companies in raising $5 to $20 million rounds of capital. He has also held investment banking positions in New York and San Francisco at Furman Selz, Cowen & Company, First Boston, Shearson Lehman Hutton, and Dean Witter Reynolds.

What you may not know about Brad is the exceptional level of hard work and devotion he delivers to his clients. In a financial world where loyalty seems to be a forgotten concept, Brad’s clients rely on him over and over for advice — clients that stretch back decades.

Brad earned both his AB in Economics and his MBA from Stanford University.
