Chad was born in Sioux City, IA, but spent most of his childhood in Texas and New Mexico. He and his wife Sarah enjoy watching their two daughters play soccer and softball. Chad loves golfing and getting the boat out on the water most weekends. He grew up racing motorcycles and raced professionally in Iowa until a crash forced him to hang it up. He still watches professional motocross and supercross races and cheers on the Kansas City Chiefs and Iowa Hawkeyes. Chad brings extensive corporate management and leadership experience to the Mercer Zimmerman team.
