Meet Bruce

Your Corner Man

For nearly twenty years, the CORE of my career/business was to interview and understand what made the most accomplished men and women in business excel. I mastered this skill, and  in the process I learned the habits, mindset and practices that separated these men and women from everyone else. 


As a renowned coach I seek out and develop these very same attributes in my athletes. 


As a speaker, I share what these attributes are and methods you can use in your own life or in your business to ensure you and your team perform to the best of your abilities.


For fifteen years Bruce ran a successful business consulting firm called LeaderBridge. LeaderBridge provided a range of business consulting services, including executive/leadership coaching, executive search, fundraising, business plan development, sales training, and strategic and general business consulting.

Prior to that, Bruce was a senior-level executive at DHR International, one of the largest and most elite senior-level (C-suite) executive search firms in the USA. While there, Bruce served in a variety of positions including SVP, Managing Director-Los Angeles, and Practice President - Gaming & Hospitality. In addition to these roles, Bruce also served on the firm's Senior Operations Committee, the Dispute Resolution Committee ,and as one of the primary sales executive trainers. During this time, Bruce interviewed, consulted for, and worked with hundreds of the nation's top business minds and leaders. Bruce considers this one of the greatest learning experiences of his executive career and values his time with the firm very much. 


Over the years, Bruce has trained thousands of young men and women ,some of whom traveled from as far away as the Philippines, Africa, Pakistan, Romania, Norway, and South America just to have Bruce work with them. Bruce's fighters have competed at every level in the sport: amateur, collegiate, the Olympics, and professional, international and world titles. A short list of recent or current fighters include: the Philippine Olympic Team, The USIBO National Team, 2 X Romanian National 

Champion and current professional IBO and IBF Champ Alexandu Marin ,and 2 X World Champ Jennifer Salinas to name but a few.  


Bruce coaches high school football. He previously was a coach for Seneca Valley high school,  one of the most successful programs in Maryland, winning more State Champions than any other school in the the history of the StateMore recently, Bruce's has joined the new staff of Clarksburg High School to take over a very troubled program in steep decline. Establishing a new culture, installing new processes and systems, and brining hope back to the community were among the staffs primary challenges. In just the second season under new direction, the program posted its first winning record in years and contend for a spot in the Maryland state playoffs.


Bruce was a former assistant strength and conditioning coach at Univ. of Maryland (football and track), a champion NPC bodybuilder, and competitive powerlifter.  Bruce considers these accomplishments and his success in bodybuilding among the most difficult, challenging and rewarding accomplishments in his life. 


Bruce has become a popular podcast guest invited to discuss his thoughts and ideas on leadership, performance, and success.  Bruce will be launching his own PodCast in early 2019. In addition, Bruce has published numerous articles for several popular sports blogs. His first book, The Boys in Backpacks:  The 5-Levels of Commitment, is due to be released in 2019.

"I have my fair share of friends, admirers ,and well wishers--I also have my share of critics -- and for the most part, I've earned them all."
