“Brad began his career in tourism as part of a very small team of passionate guides onboard the fledgling Rocky Mountaineer. Over the next 15 years, he moved his way up in the company, eventually running the Guest Services Department and helping to shape the train into a world-class experience. Twenty years later, he has owned his own travel agencies, tour companies and also written marketing materials, with a flair for working with tourism based companies. In 2007, he decided to start motorcoach touring, beginning as an international guide in China and Italy before finally deciding to focus on Canada's West Coast and the Rocky Mountains, his own backyard. He has escorted thousands of inspired guests through one of the most beautiful areas of the world.”
