Brad Casual

Brad Klassen, CPA, CA

Brad laces up his running shoes and brings an extra measure of competitive spirit to Fort Group, (not that we needed any more). As someone who enjoys competing in triathlons, Brad can surely hold his own with the other partners who merely run marathons.

A family man, Brad loves to spend time with his wife, Cheryl, their three adult children (and their spouses) and his 6 active grandchildren. He enjoys travelling overseas and all over North America. Some of his favourite destinations have been France, England, Italy, Australia, Arizona and New York, and hopes to soon visit New Zealand, Australia (again), Virginia, and try a European river cruise.
