He served in senior positions with the US Department of Agriculture Farm Service Agency in the Obama Administration, and most recently as the Secretary-designee of the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection. Previously, Brad held positions in the Offices of US Representative Ron Kind and US Senator Herb Kohl.

Brad met his wife, Betty, a West Salem native, while he was a senior in high school at a 4-H leadership luncheon. They are the proud parents of two college-aged children.
