Indianapolis’ Bradley Company names new president, CEO

Chad Phillips

Bradley Company is establishing its principal office in Indianapolis, boosting the state’s largest independently owned full-service commercial real estate firm’s presence in the Circle City.

Bradley also announced that Chad Phillips is the company’s new President and CEO. He will succeed Brad Toothaker, who will turn his focus to strategic growth initiatives for the company. 

Founded in 1978, Bradley Company has seven offices in Indiana and Michigan. Establishing its principal office in Indianapolis is the natural progression in the company’s evolution and growth. In 2020, Bradley acquired Indianapolis-based RESOURCE Commercial Real Estate, absorbing more than 40 real estate professionals to the Bradley team.

Phillips takes the helm of the company after spending a year as the President of Growth and Development. He has more than 20 years of experience in commercial real estate and held leadership roles at CBRE and Simon Property Group during his career.

Members of Bradley’s executive team will be housed at its new offices on Indianapolis’ north side. Joining Phillips will be:  Kim Collins, interim COO and executive managing director of commercial asset services; Sandy Hege, senior managing director, finance & information systems; and Heather Turner, executive managing director, multi-housing.

Entering new markets is a touchstone of Bradley’s growth strategy. In addition to the RESOURCE acquisition in 2020, Bradley acquired XVentures in Grand Rapids in 2018, opening up the west Michigan market.
