Brad Faulkner, CPA

Fun facts about Brad:
  • Brad is a fast pitch softball coach and serves as the Softball Chair on the Greater Cleveland Athletic Association (GCAA) Board of Directors.
  • He is a huge Star Wars fan, and his favorite character is Yoda… something about a short, bald dude with a funky sense of humor resonates.
  • He was once asked by the lady at the Bojangles drive through, “Does your wife know how much you come here?”
