Background

Bradley worked at Toyota Motors Manufacturing in Georgetown Kentucky for twelve years.  He was a part of the initial “start-up” group that hired and trained team members.

For the past fifteen years Bradley has worked as a Lean Consultant.  He has taken the lean principles that he learned at Toyota and applied them in other plants and industries to help them improve efficiency and productivity and to improve gross profit.  He has worked in many types of industries including mining, medical, food manufacturing, automotive and pulp and paper mills to name a few.

In addition to classroom instruction, Bradley has been an instructor of Toyota’s “8 Step Problem Solving” throughout the University of Kentucky.  He also did training at the University of Cork doing extensive projects through the Irish Center of Business and Excellence (ICBE).
