"We welcome Brad to the Latin America team," said Schepen. "He has interacted with us in the past as our Product Development Manager and therefore has an understanding of our goals and operations. We are certain that he will quickly become an invaluable asset to our team." Brown graduated from East Tennessee State University with a BBA in accounting in 1986 and earned a MBA and a BS in Information Systems from the University of North Florida in 1995. He earned his CPA from the state of Georgia in 1988.
