Brad McCandless, the newest member of MPS’ PACE Cohort 11, got his initial consulting experience at the grassroots consulting firm, 270 Strategies, in Chicago, where he worked on strategy for political and nonprofit groups.
After earning his B.A. in Political Science and International Studies from Northwestern University, Brad came to DC to work at the Albright Stonebridge Group, a global strategic advisory firm, where he specialized in commercial diplomacy, and at the National Democratic Institute, focusing on elections. Previously, he worked at the Council on Foreign Relations, doing research geared toward political and economic reform in the Middle East and North Africa.
At MPS, Brad is looking forward to developing strategies for clients and partners to bring about meaningful organizational change. Outside the firm, he enjoys playing squash, baseball, and all things outdoors, along with keeping up with contemporary film.
