Brad started at EcoSpeed in 2007 on a volunteer basis after a chance sighting of an EcoSpeed kit. He had fallen in love with the machine and all the social, environmental, and physical implications that electric bikes offer the world. He joined the team and has since graduated with a bachelors degree in Human Studies and a certificate in Business Management from Marylhurst University.

Brad has worked for EcoSpeed from the ground up and has gone from summer volunteer to General Manager. He wants to help people experience the same joy of riding an EcoSpeed bike that he experiences with his, and he is dedicated to providing the opportunity. His energy is involved with all the operations of the company, and when you work with us he will be your personal contact.
