Director of Indirect Purchasing
Brad shifted careers from manufacturing, production planning, to procurement after graduating from Western Michigan University with a major in Integrated Supply Chain Management. After spending most of his procurement career in consulting, he joined Rivian at the tail end of their stealth mode in 2018 to help build their procurement department. Rivian has experienced tremendous growth since then, which includes the indirect procurement team that Brad leads. This has proved both Rivian and Brad the opportunity to grow the procurement organization in the same manner as Rivian talks about designing the vehicles, from a blank sheet of paper.
