Brad Olsen began his professional career in sales after graduating from Dickinson College with a B.A. in International Business and Management. Starting off as an account executive for Clear Channel Broadcasting, Brad developed the ability to build strong relationships, expose opportunities, and close new business. After proving himself at the ground level, Brad’s sales skills served him well when he joined Aero Logistics in 2005. Subsequently, he was quickly promoted to sales manager and given the task to create and build a team of his own in Phoenix, AZ.
From his experiences, Brad developed the necessary skill set for what is required to build a successful business. Always wanting to tap into his entrepreneurial dream of starting his own business, Brad found his true calling when he recognized a definitive online pet health resource did not exist. Through combining his deep care for animals with his understanding of operating a successful business, Brad began moving forward with creating PetWave.com.
“It is my goal to not only build a business that can help animals, but also to build a business that will leave its mark on the pet industry”, Brad Olsen.
