Dallas, TX – December 8, 2016 – FORTIUM PARTNERS, the world’s fastest-growing provider of technology leadership services, today announced that Brad Bush, creative business visionary and technology thought leader has joined the Dallas practice. As a thought leader in many technologies, Bush was named a WebRTC pioneer, an InformationWeek CIO top innovator and a top 50 CMO in telecom for his storied accomplishments in recent leadership roles. Bush focuses on delivering technology-driven business outcomes via his understanding of strategy, operations, finance and marketing.
Prior to joining Fortium, Bush was COO at Dialexa, a research, design and creation firm which builds innovative software and hardware platforms for Fortune 500 Companies. Before Dialexa, Bush held several positions at GENBAND, including six years as CIO and two years as CMO. Before GENBAND, he was responsible for business unit operations at Tekelec Switching Solutions Group, and spent eight years at Nortel Networks, where he held various strategic positions in information technology and wireless operations. An entrepreneur at heart, Bush founded Sharpsite Interactive, a successful startup specializing in Internet application development.
“Every business is becoming a digital business. Technology has become so disruptive that a single customer-centric application can change a company’s business model or disrupt an industry. Brad is a leader who can see business transformation opportunities and develop a plan to help that business adapt and compete. He is a whole brain thinker who has sat in the CIO seat, the CMO seat and the COO seat, so he looks at the business with a critical eye from all angles,” said Tim McCracken, Fortium Chairman and CEO. “Combining Brad’s broad cross-discipline background with the deep technology experience of fellow partners in our rapidly-growing firm is what makes Fortium a force. No other firm can combine the holistic business and technology viewpoint that we bring.”
“Technology teams are fast realizing that they are no longer cost centers that keep the back office running. Today’s technology leaders are using innovation to differentiate from the competition, drive new business lines and make customers happier. Businesses that ignore these opportunities will fade away, while those who capitalize on these opportunities now will become industry leaders,” said Bush. “So many businesses need help understanding and integrating upcoming technology, and Fortium is an ideal opportunity to offer guidance on how machine learning, virtual reality, artificial intelligence and predictive analytics can transform practically any type of organization. I’m honored to deliver these services with a team of peers who know how to speak business and technology.”
Bush holds a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from Rice University and an MBA from Southern Methodist University.
