Life is all about having an impact. Make a difference. At least one other person’s life should be better because of you. Hopefully more than one person, but whatever the magnitude, be sure that your being here had meaning. Don’t just exist. Live.

Bradley C. Simpson, CEO, Vection Technologies, Inc.

With all of life’s distractions and competing influences, it is increasingly difficult to separate what matters from what does not. But it is essential. Understanding what is important and what is merely noise makes the difference between success and failure, happiness and disappointment.

Jonathon Barbato, CMO, Vection Technologies, Inc.

The Minds Behind myTikr

Bradley C. Simpson, Chief Executive Officer/Creator

Brad has more than 20 years of operational and executive experience working in technology-driven business environments. He has a proven track record of pulling together the right talent to create the right team, from software and business-minded professionals to creative and financial gurus. More importantly, he has entrepreneurial vision: vision that has led to the creation of myTikr.

That same vision applied to his work prior at Braxton Technologies, Inc., where he helped develop a state-of-the-art Command, Control, Tracking and Scheduling system for U.S. government defense satellite systems. Brad also spearheaded software development, investment, and maintenance, as well as systems engineering and contract management for Braxton.

When not tethered to his digital device, which is rare, Brad scans the consumer landscape for needed innovation that he thinks is missing on the consumer front. He is always ready to pounce on opportunities to create products and technologies to fill pressing needs. Brad attended Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, and the University of Southern California.
