Chad is apart of Baylor University's Class of 2020, where he anticipates on receiving a BBA in Entrepreneurship and Corporate Innovation. He is a graduate of Walton High School in Marietta, GA.
Chad has refused to use his age an excuse; instead he uses it as a platform as he works to fulfill his dreams. His ventures began in middle school, buying broken iPhones with his babysitting money and selling them for profit on eBay. His mini-brokerage began to grow, as Chad escalated into selling luxury watercraft and automobiles. Chad's passion for closing the deal was extended into the private aviation industry, where he sold charters for private jets and various private aviation services under one of the country's leading experts. Chad invested his earnings into owning a food and beverage vending stand, Electrolytes & Bites.
Chad has also consulted various clients across multiple industries. Recent client services include online branding, teen motivation, and start up development.
Additionally, he has worked on teams in developing and fine-tuning their strategy, maximizing profitability. In these various roles he has served in the capacity of Vice President and Director of Investor Relations.
Chad is in the final stages of finalizing BizBoards.com, which he co-founded with his partner in Australia. Chad is serving as CEO with the headquarters located in Atlanta. Offices are scattered throughout the world, including a location in Australia and a development team in New York City. The start-up has already gained tremendous traction from some of the area's most notable legal and banking advisors, as well as interest from investors. Five year net income is estimated to be eight figures, according to professionally gathered information.
With total gross revenue of $1mm+, Chad seems to be constantly surpassing goals. Chad has received numerous awards and has even spoken on the landscape of youth entrepreneurship at Emory's Goizueta Business School.
Above the awards and accolades, Chad values the fulfillment he receives through serving his community. As founder of a charitable organization, Chad's dream-big mentality has allowed Atlanta Children's Charities to grow rapidly, resulting in more positively impacted lives. He founded this clearing house when he found it difficult to volunteer somewhere where he could see the impact he was making. Chad quickly joined forces with his high school peers on a quest to touch the lives of those in his Metro Atlanta community. Just a year later, at the age of 18, Chad is orchestrating the group of over 220 students in volunteering at organizations such as the Ronald McDonald House.
Chad sits on the board of directors for The Fatherless Daughter Project as the youngest board member. TFDP is a novel, documentary, as well as a non-profit providing tools to fatherless daughters. There is also a novel titled The Fatherless Daughter Project, which was published by Penguin Random House. Chad was invited to join by TFDP founders, as he offers counsel alongside a group of board members which include CEO's, TV personalities, and socialites.
