Joe Bradford

Head of Operations, Fiasco Ltd

If there's a problem, Joe will find a solution. That's just the kind of guy he is. Maybe it's having been exposed to so many other cultures; since childhood, he's lived in five countries across Asia, North America and the Pacific. Maybe it's his experience with large events; he's been managing music, corporate and church events since 2007. Maybe it's his business education; he has a couple of degrees including a Masters in Global Studies from Columbia International University (South Carolina, USA). Or maybe it's just in his DNA, born with a knack for logistics and coordinating resources. But whatever the reason, one thing's for sure: when faced with a challenge, Joe knows how to get the job done.
