BIG News! I’m leaving Butler University.

If you follow me on Twitter, you already know that I announced last Friday that I’m leaving Butler at the end of the month.

What’s next?

I have partnered with Joe Gaylor from to start a new company that will help Colleges and Universities use the web to achieve their marketing and recruitment goals. I’m looking forward to sharing my extensive knowledge and skills of web-based recruitment and marketing with other universities, just as I have with Butler over the past 20 months. We have hit the ground running with our clients and I am excited about staying in higher ed, just in a different capacity.

Butler has been an amazing workplace for me and I’m glad to have had the opportunity to grow here and work with so many great people.  Keep your eye out for a job posting if you’re interested, I would wholeheartedly encourage you to give it some thought if you’re interested. Indy is a great city and Butler is a magnificent school/workplace.

What’s changing on SquaredPeg? Hopefully nothing. I hope this continues to be a place where you can get recent news on what’s hot, my thoughts on higher ed, and posts about cool projects or efforts out there. I hope to just keep doing what’s worked. You’ll notice some small text changes on the site, but nothing major for now.

So, be sure to check out and email me at brad(at) if you’re ready to take your recruitment and marketing to the next level. We’d love to work with you.

Well, that’s about it! Again, thanks for reading/subscribing. :)

PS – I just wanted to say thanks again to everyone on Twitter who has sent me a message, DM, or email to congratulate Joe and I on the new company.  Very inspiring!

Now I really like the video, but what’s with the TIE????

Haha! Just got home from work. Don’t worry, no more ties in a few weeks….

Very cool, sounds exciting. Looking forward to what you guys will offer. We could certainly use the help.

Sounds great, Brad… will look forward to hearing about this next chapter in your work life!

Congratulations and best of luck. I’ll definitely stay tuned.
