ASK ME ABOUT:
Rustling up grub for 1,500 hungry sailors on a battleship in the middle of nowhere, driving the coolest route around the Grand Canyon out of Vegas, or how I once matched the iron handshakes of Norman Schwarzkopf and his bodyguard.
AND FOR THE REST OF THE STORY:
A lot of folks know St. Louis for its toasted ravioli, gooey-butter cake and pizza, but for us here at Zensho Agency, the best thing the city has ever cooked up is Brad Corbet. Through the Gateway Arch, he headed west and didn’t stop till he reached The Rising Sun where he finished his navy years aboard the USS Blue Ridge (flagship of the 7th fleet) and other sea monsters. Stepping away from the service, he was soon working as an executive search consultant at one of Tokyo’s major firms. But even a guy renowned for his easygoing nature can take only so much grief, and this month Brad came on board at The Agency, a move he knows is the blue ocean cure to all his red ocean woes over at that other place. “It makes sense,” he says. “After knowing what doesn’t work, it’s enlightening to find something that does.”
Family, friends and colleagues alike admire him for his reliability, empathy and positive vibes (perhaps not so much for his outrageous rocking out to 80s hits). What to call someone who views setbacks as learning opportunities rather than failures? A winner, which is just one of the many reasons why Brad is perfect for The Agency culture. He is our first functional specialist, focusing on HR roles across all industry sectors – a hat this aspiring gourmet wears as comfortably as he does a chef’s toque. Welcome to the tribe, brother! We look forward to watching you fry the competition for years to come.
