Brad Zarba – Excelling In Your Profession

According to the 'Brad Zarba, Biggest Name In Leadership Quality Video On Slideshare,' Brad Zarba joined Johnson Controls as its New England Region Project Manager in 2005. He rapidly became known as a highly-motivated individual, who developed strategies to manage over $7 million in project backlogs. Single-handedly, Brad Zurba managed project development, implementation and close-out, while striving to prevent margin erosion and increase overall profitability. He was also responsible for all service prime retrofit projects in the five New England states and developed and implemented a manpower loading tools to aid in the adjustment of the prime work force. During his time at Johnson Controls, Brad Zarba came to be very highly-regarded at developing close relationships with suppliers, vendors and customers while his management of non-unionized control technicians - as well as union mechanics – led to him being given overall responsibility for all negotiations with unions.

As the Brad Zarba Profile on Flickr reveals, he was then offered the post of Account Manager with Honeywell International. His remit was to increase sales revenues and to develop and maintain exceptional customer relationships, while promoting Honeywell's service offerings – a responsibility he performed so effectively that he was named as one of the top ten US sales performers in 2011. Other duties required handling the accounts of the Brigham and Woman's Hospital, the Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital, Newton Wellesley Hospital and North Shore Medical – a task that required him to work closely with local and non-union employess to increase service base. He also successfully developed a multi-million dollar fire alarm upgrade project for a leading hospital in Boston.
In his current position as Area Operations Manager for the Carrier Corporation – United Technologies Corp, Brad Zarba has developed and operated business plans to improve regional performance throughout the New England and Upstate New York region. But it is his leadership in developing and implementing Operational Business Plans to maximize regional performance that has brought him such acclaim and contributed to him receiving the National Operations Award in 2015. Indeed, the judges particularly drew attention to his huge achievement in improving PM compliance scores to achieve an ACE Silver Metrics award, while vastly improving year-on-year customer engagement figures. Brad Zarba also achieved a 124 percent rise in earnings before tax and a 115 percent increase in return of sales figures.

He first studied Mechanical Engineering at the University of Lowell, Massachusetts, before moving to North Eastern University, Boston, to focus on Mechanical Engineering Operations. Brad Zarba has also been awarded a Bachelor of  Science in Business Management by the University of Phoenix, Massachusetts.
