Brad is head of all things network, peering and engineering related for NationalNet. He joined us in 2008 after his employment with WV Fiber, Inc. in Nashville, TN. His extensive knowledge in the field made it a no brainer for our team to woo him away to help us grow.
Brad plays a major role in the Internet world by his involvement in organizations such as ARIN (American Registry for Internet Numbers), NANOG, Equinix Peering Forum, AID Phone and Part 15. Recently, Brad spoke to network operators from around the globe as Atlanta played host city for NANOG-50, the 50th meeting of the North American Network Operators Group. His presentation centered on the enormous task of upgrading the entire internet (yes, the whole thing) from IPv4 to IPv6 over the coming months and years. Aren’t you glad his expertise is housed within NationalNet? We sure are.
In the past, Brad has volunteered his services to help those in need, including serving two months in the flood ravaged city of New Orleans following the Katrina disaster to rebuild network services in the region. He continues his philanthropy in a personal way as well, by serving on the board for his HOA and as the Chair for the Security Committee.
Brad and his wife have four furry pugs, named Jacob, Madeliene, Gilbert and Stanley. They continue to support the Music City Pug Foundation in their home town of Nashville, TN.
