Following P&G, Brad moved into the financial services industry, holding various roles in the Visa Card Products Division and the Electronic Banking Division at Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC). After solidifying a big company skill set, he sought to explore more entrepreneurial opportunities, first at banking technology solutions supplier Phoenix Interactive Design and then with international strategy execution firm KR Strategy. In 2012, Brad started Anti-Counterfeiting Strategy Group (ACSG) and became an evangelist advising brand owners how to both set and execute plans to combat the global scourge of counterfeiting.
