Bradley Crate founded Red Curve Solutions in 2008 after serving as the deputy chief financial officer for the 2008 Romney for President campaign. Previously, he had worked in the Romney administration as a fiscal policy analyst and director of capital planning and policy.
Red Curve Solutions came about as Crate's public sector and political experience intersected with his years of work in finance and training as an investment banker. With his unique blend of experience and understanding of the technology behind financial systems, he recognized that few people in the political world could provide solid financial management guidance to campaigns. As a result, Red Curve was born.
Since founding Red Curve Solutions, Bradley has served as the treasurer and assistant treasurer to numerous political organizations. Most recently, Bradley was the chief financial officer for Romney for President and Romney Victory, the joint fundraising committee, overseeing the entire financial operation that spent $1.0 billion during the 2012 election cycle. Brad was recently a featured panelist at the Campaigns and Elections Magazine ‘Art of Political Campaigning’ seminar in Washington, DC, and Red Curve was recognized as a finalist for Best Use of New Technology at the magazine’s Annual Reed Awards.
Bradley began his career as a trader at Prudential Securities and then moved to JP Morgan where he traded interest rate derivatives. In 2002, he moved to Boston from New York City and began his ultimate political experience working on Mitt Romney’s gubernatorial campaign as political operations director. He met his wife on that campaign and continued to work for Governor Romney during his four years as governor and on his two presidential campaigns.
Bradley has a BA in economics and political science from Washington College and an MS in investment management from Boston University.
