Brad has played a key part in establishing the Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Healthcare since its early planning stages. Over the years, Brad has gained a deep understanding of our work, and has demonstrated both a professional and personal commitment to the hospital’s mission. Part of Brad’s role was to work with the County in building the hospital. As a result, he brings a unique understanding of our public-private partnership.
Brad’s first healthcare client in 1985 was the Watts Healthcare Clinic, where Brad helped to set up its technology platform. A volunteer leadership position with the foundation is a natural extension of his South Los Angeles community commitment.
Brad is also active in other community activities. He currently serves on the leadership board of his local church and is a board member of a local university and seminary. For many years, Brad chaired the March of Dimes LA Downtown Bunker Hill Walk Campaign and helped to organize the Warner Center Walk campaign prior to that. Brad and his wife, Susan, are leaders in the UCLA Wooden Athletic Foundation.
Brad has a BS in Math/Computer Science from UCLA and an MBA in Finance from USC. Prior to starting T2C, he was a partner at Deloitte Consulting in its healthcare practice.
