He is familiar with operating, within a large corporation, as well as a desire to develop startups and grow them to meaningful size businesses. Brad took a genuine interest in helping children on the Autism spectrum back in late 2008 when he learned of an Autism program that Co-founder and former partner Julie Martin had started/managed at a school in the SW suburbs of Chicago. Brad put a business plan in motion, raised the capital to fund the initial operational budget and opened BYS in the Fall of 2009 in Burr Ridge. Brad looks forward to expanding the breadth of BYS’ footprint and service offering to reach more families that are needing help for their respective family members on the Autism spectrum.
