Whether he’s tackling a customer experience transformation or organizational and operating model design, Brady skillfully navigates multi-dimensional challenges while pioneering fresh perspectives and rallying leaders and their teams around a unified vision. Always open to new adventures—and to taking a certain amount of (calculated) risk—Brady’s natural curiosity compels him to dig deep and push past ingrained assumptions when solving complex business problems. His ability to approach challenges holistically, without losing sight of how each and every person, process, and system is inextricably linked, allows Brady to act as an effective executive adviser and champion for change. 

At Navigate, Brady juggles a variety of projects and priorities, which run the gamut from designing client strategies and implementing solutions to leading internal teams, recruiting fresh talent, and developing the firm’s business.

The path that led Brady to consulting may not have been a straight shot, but it was a journey filled with unique and dynamic experiences that continue to guide his work today. As a leader building the Green Program from the ground up to an award-winning global business, Brady used his startup experience, human-centered design chops, and freshly minted MBA to forge a career in consulting. 

In his free time, you can find Brady chasing waves to surf, powder to snowboard, or coaching youth basketball.
