Prior to Forefront Management Group, LLC, Brad was the founder of Pali Capital (1995) and was the CEO until 2008. During this time, Pali Capital made $1 billion in revenues and employed over 250 employees. Brad resigned from Pail Capital after he found out that his partner and others at the company had been involved in activities that he did not condone. Brad continued his independent career by starting the Forefront Capital Advisers company in 2009, and is now very occupied as the founder and CEO. He holds various regulatory licenses including Series 3, 7, 24, and 63.

On February 9, 2016, Brad announced a partnership between Forefront Capital and Easter Seals Dixon Center. Brad mentioned that one of the reasons he decided to partner with Easter Seals Dixon Center is because they have made a great impact on the lives of veterans and military families; they provide access to education, healthcare, and jobs. The partnership between the two companies includes a $3 million donation to Easter Seals Dixon Center.
