The Brad Rex Group
All Ahead Flank! Prior to senior executive positions with The Walt Disney Company and Hilton Hotels, Brad Rex was an engineering officer on a U.S. Navy ballistic missile submarine, responsible for the ship's nuclear power plant. Control rods determined the amount of energy released from the plant's core. If the rods were fully inserted, the power plant produced little heat. With the rods fully raised, enough energy was released to accelerate the massive ship to maximum flank speed and maintain it indefinitely.
Most companies and individuals have massive power at their disposal. They can excel beyond measure. But, the "control rods" have to be raised, releasing them from mediocrity. Brad’s passion is to help companies and people release their potential, and achieve more than they ever thought possible.
