Co-Founder: Brad was a co-founder of Wizard Home Loans with Mark Bouris in the mid 90s, a business created with the vision to drive real competition in the Australian & New Zealand Mortgage market for the consumer and to monetise this proposition in amplified value to the shareholder - it delivered both with stunning success. The business went on to become one of the most recognised financial services brands and 5th largest lender in the country ahead of its ultimate sale to General Electric Company in 2005 for nearly half a billion dollars.
Wizard: Following the sale of Wizard Brad went on to take up a role as a Senior Executive at GE, responsible for the growth of the global brand in Financial Services, including the launch of the Wizard brand and business model into the Indian subcontinent in 2007/08.

Hi focus at A & G was driving 10 times system growth through smart business and distribution partnerships.
