Hartmann advises leaders of LBM dealers, distributors, and manufacturers across the country and trains thousands of commercial and residential construction leaders annually through his executive coaching and consulting, online training programs, custom workshops, and keynote speeches.

Bradley was a quarterback at Eastern Illinois University, graduated from The University of Illinois with a degree in Spanish, and later earned his MBA.
