You don’t have to be a politically savvy person to know about Brad Parscale. He became famous in the run-up to the 2016 US presidential election when he worked with Donal Trump’s campaign team as a media director. He became even more famous after he was appointed campaign manager for Trump’s 2020 re-election. Here is everything you need to know about the man who was appointed to bring Donald Trump back to the White House in 2020.
Brad Parscale Bio
His full name is Bradley James Parscale and he was born on January 3, 1976, in Topeka, Kansas. His father Dwight Parscale was a politician and businessman, while his mother Rita Parscale was also in business.
As an adult, Brad got involved with computers, but he also found a love for sports, especially basketball, which he wanted to try to make a career. He even played in his school and college days before he was forced to change direction after a knee injury.
For his education, Brad Parscale attended Shawnee Heights High School. Thanks to his athletic abilities, he was accepted with a scholarship to the University of Texas at San Antonio, but it was here that he suffered the injury that would change his path forever. Next, he sought and received a degree in Finance, International Business, and Economics from Trinity University.
With his love of computers and his knowledge of finance, the Kansas native founded a web marketing company called Parscale Media in 2004. Years later, the company will evolve into Giles-Parscale, Inc. This happened after he met Jill Giles and decided to partner with her.
Without a doubt, Brad Parscale has worked his way up the ladder of success. But he has also benefited from all his hard work in terms of fame and fortune.
Of all the work he did for the Trump Campaign 2016, Giles-Parscale received $94 million in payments, although the company claims to have made less than $10 million in profits. Even more, in 2017 he sold part of his company to cloud commerce for $9 million. He then founded his much larger company, Parscale Strategy LLC, with an eye for larger customers.
With all this, it is obvious that he is doing very well, but his actual net worth has not been made public.
As already mentioned, besides computers, Parscale’s next love is basketball. Before he injured himself and was forced to leave the sport forever, his outstanding height and overwhelming physique were among the things that helped him a lot. The tall man stands on a massive 6 feet 8 inches tall. According to this, he weighs 240 pounds, while the general body measurements are still unknown.
Family and Wife
As mentioned earlier, Brad grew up in a very small family. As a politician, his father, Dwight Parscale, served as Assistant Attorney General. He also ran for Congress.
There is not much about the life of the new Trump campaign manager for the 2020 elections, except that he is married. His wife’s name is Candice Blount. They have one grown-up child.
Even though he basically went off on his own, which brought him into the public eye, his activities are in the Trump Organization and later in the Trump Campaign. He started out as a website designer, among other things, and in 2011 he was given the opportunity to work with the Trump Organization after being contacted by the organization to submit a performance.
Soon after, he continued working with the organization until his company was commissioned to create a website for Donald Trump, who was competing for victory in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Once this was satisfactorily completed, the company was again asked to take over the digital promotions as the primaries approached.
Although Brad Parscale had no political experience, he was able to do his job well and win Trump’s trust so much that he continued to work with him after winning the primary. He took a radical approach and spent a lot of money on Facebook advertising and other social media campaigns. In the end, he confessed that the Trump campaign did not need Russian influence to win the election. He made this statement after allegations of Russian collusion in the elections surfaced.
Brad, who now heads Parscale Strategy LLC., was announced by the Trump Campaign as campaign manager, as Donald Trump is running for re-election in 2020.
