Fresh from the east coast, Chad is settling in naturally with the relaxed lifestyle that the west coast offers, especially here in the pacific northwest. Don’t get it twisted though– he approaches challenges head on with aggressive strategies to drive results. He takes his work like he takes his coffee, straight up with no fuss.
