Profile of Brad Magers
Brad Magers is a Community Outreach Coordinator for the Minnesota Operations branch of the Foundation for Financial Education.
Having grown up and raised his own family in Minnesota, Brad is very in touch with his community and its strong core values. Throughout his twenties Brad’s intense entrepreneurial drive helped him open and successfully run a chain of martial arts academies. It was through this hard work and dedication that he realized his passion for teaching.
As a small business owner, pushing through a recession became difficult and watching close friends and family experience their own financial struggles made him realize it was time to shift his focus. So he began diligently studying every piece of financial literature he could find and working his way into the field, Brad found himself mentoring under and working alongside some of the brightest financial minds in the industry. Brad has now brought his passion for teaching and his decade plus of work in financial services to his community.
Brad is still a dedicated student of martial arts. He enjoys spending time with his wife, Cheryl and dog (Bentley) exploring the endless parks and lakes Minnesota has to offer. Fishing, kayaking, hiking, and golfing are just a few of their favorite adventures. Brad and Cheryl especially enjoy frequent trips to Colorado, where their daughter, Kyra (20) lives and works as an Esthetician.
