A Purdue University graduate with a degree in Construction Engineering and Management, Brad has over 25 years’ experience in the construction and property management industries. Under Brad’s leadership, Brad-Core provides an innovative approach for both commercial and residential clients - a full-service design, construction and maintenance support staff with the mission of positively impacting people’s lives on a daily basis.
Brad’s business philosophy is well represented in the non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that he founded, Humanism in Building d/b/a Senior Source. For Brad, construction is more than a way to earn a living --- it is also a vehicle through which he serves the community. With this philosophy in mind, he utilizes design and construction to positively impact the lives of seniors, those with special needs, and their families. He has earned his certification as an Aging in Place Specialist from the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and is a member of the American Institute of Architects. Brad utilizes his knowledge and resources to collaborate with individuals in need, foundations, local organizations and the Jewish Home Family’s “Safely at Home” program. In 2015, Brad was honored for his commitment to helping others by receiving the Community Health Improvement Partnership (CHIP) of Bergen County, marking the first time CHIP honored a non-medical professional.
Brad developed and founded Senior Source in 2010, a non-traditional senior lounge at the Shops at Riverside in Hackensack for seniors to gather, free of charge, to socialize and enjoy a wide range of activities and resources. Brad strongly believes in the power of inter-generational relationships, spearheading various related programs at Senior Source. Senior Source has served as a vocational partner with SINAI Schools since 2015, welcoming SINAI high school students who work on a range of projects including creating promotional materials, event fliers, and offering technical assistance to the seniors. Another popular program, Senior Tech Time, has paired student tutors from Ma’ayanot Girls Yeshiva High School one-on-one with seniors, to assist with their computers and smartphones. SINAI is deeply grateful to Brad for establishing The BRAD-CORE/Humanism in Building Scholarship Fund, which enables many SINAI students to receive the special education they need to succeed.
