One must not be a politically savvy person to know about Brad Parscale. He became famous in the build-up to the 2016 US Presidential election when he worked with Donal Trump‘s campaign team as the media director. He has become even more famous after he was named as Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign manager. Here is all to know about the man tasked with returning Donald Trump 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 a businessman, while his mother Rita Parscale was also into business.
Growing up, the mind Brad was on computers, but he also found love in sports, most especially basketball which he would attempt to make a career out of, even playing in his high school and college days before he was forced to look at another direction after he suffered a knee injury.
For his education, Brad Parscale attended the Shawnee Heights High School. Thanks to his athletic abilities, he gained admission into the University of Texas at San Antonio on scholarship, but it was here that he suffered the injury that would change his path forever. Next, he sought and got a degree in finance, international business, and economics from the Trinity University.
Bringing together his love for computers and his knowledge in finances, the Kansas native started a web marketing firm known as Parscale Media in 2004. Years later, the firm will evolve to Giles-Parscale, Inc. This was after he met and decided to partner with Jill Giles.
Family and Wife
As noted, Brad was raised in a very small family. Being a politician, his father Dwight Parscale, served as an assistant attorney general. He also ran for Congress.
There is no much about the dating life of the new Trump campaign manager for the 2020 elections except that he is married. The name of his wife is Candice Blount. The two have a grown-up child.
Even though he started out basically on his own, what has brought him to the eyes of the public is his activities with the Trump Organization and later the Trump Campaign. Starting out as a website designer among other things, he got the opportunity to work with the Trump Organization in 2011 after being contacted by the Organization to send in a gig.
Soon afterward, he kept on working with the organization until his firm got the call to build a website for Donald Trump in his bid to win the 2016 US Presidential elections. Once that was done satisfactorily, the firm was again called upon to handle the digital promotions as the primary elections drew nearer.
Although with no political experience, Brad Parscale was able to handle his job well and win the trust of Trump enough to keep working with him even after winning the primary elections. He took a radical approach and spent a lot of money on Facebook adverts and other social media campaigns that he confessed at the end that the Trump Campaign didn’t need any influence from the Russians to win the election. He made the statement after allegations of Russian collusion in the elections surfaced.
Brad who now runs the Parscale Strategy LLC. was announced by the Trump Campaign to served as the campaign manager as Donald Trump bids for reelection in 2020.
With no doubt, Brad Parscale has worked his way up to the ladder of success. With that said, he has also reaped from all his hard work as far as fame and fortune is concerned.
From all the works he has handled for the Trump Campaign in 2016, Giles- Parscale received $94 million in payments, even though the firm said it was only able to make less than 10 million in profit from it all. More so, in 2017, he sold a part of his company for $9 million to CloudCommerce. It was after this that he started his much larger company, Parscale Strategy LLC, with an eye for bigger clients.
With all this, it is obvious that he is doing very well, but his actual net worth has not been released.
As stated, apart from the computer, the next love of Parscale is basketball. Before he got injured and was forced to leave the sports for good, one of the things that have helped him greatly is his towering height and overwhelming body build. The big man stands at a massive 6 feet 8 inches tall. That stated, his weight is 240 pounds while general body measurements still remain unknown.
