Class of 1987 graduate, Brad Padula attended the University of Southern Colorado pursuing his passion for athletics and his creative drive to film and produce sports videos. At age eighteen, Brad founded “Capture it Productions”, laying the groundwork for a highly respected creative and business management career. After working jointly with Marketing Plus on many projects, Padula’s business merged with Marketing Plus to become the Media Center. Brad, as Chief Operating Officer, is a highly skilled media buyer working with clients across the country. Of particular note is Brad’s successful effort to secure funding from Texas billionaire H. Ross Perot for the distribution of the Beyond the Medal DVD set to over 17,000 public and private high schools across the nation. Brad developed a close relationship with Medal of Honor recipient Drew Dix. As a result of that relationship, he helped found the Center for American Values, Inc. He currently serves on the board of the Center, a non-profit, non political organization formed for charitable and educational purposes.
Brad recently formed a partnership to build the REPS gym and Sports Complex in Pueblo, employing 25 people. He is lead guitarist in local band Overton Road. The band performs throughout the region and into Texas, often donating their talents for fund raising events.
