These programs involved all aspects of the organization including R&D and Sales & Marketing, among other enabling functions. During this time, Tad founded BCG’s internal Operational Innovations group, which is focused on driving and accelerating large change programs within BCG's internal functions. He also started the firm’s New Jersey office and served as the Office Leader for five years.
Tad has a B.A. in Economics from Dartmouth College and an MBA from Stanford University Graduate School of Business. Outside of BCG, Tad lives with his family in Montclair, NJ, and enjoys photography, his three dogs, Boston sports teams, and golf.
In his 18 years of client service at BCG, much of Tad's work has focused on biopharmaceutical change efforts, especially organizational design, integration, and transformation.
