Brad started out working part time in the lumber yard in Gadsden, AL in 1999 and became a full-time associate the following year. Soon after, he moved to the inside of the store, became a Team Leader and was quickly moved into the Management Training Program. After completing his management training, he accepted a Yard Manager position in Albertville, AL and a few years later became the Store Manager in the same store. While leading the Albertville team he managed a transition from a very old facility to our new concept store located on HWY 431 in Albertville. Brad's store has been used for new management training due to the consistency of his/his team's performance.
Today, Brad continues to lead a great team of associates in Albertville and was voted by readers of the Sand Mountain Reporter as the Best Lawn & Garden Products Store and the Best Building Material Supplier in the area. He and his team's success can be directly linked to their strong focus on meeting the needs of the customer. "My favorite part of working in the industry is being able to help customers. I really enjoy that and Marvin's allows you to run your own store. Our #1 focus is helping customers." Brad leads by example and can be found mixing paint, cutting keys, loading lumber or running a register for customers on any given day of the week. He was also selected to receive the 2010 North American Retail Hardware Association's Retail Innovator's Award.
