Brad Michaud, Venture, Inc. (Pontiac) – Region 5

I have twenty-five years experience working for Oakland Livingston Human Service Agency (OLHSA) (Community Action Agency) in Pontiac serving the last thirteen years as the Chief Financial Officer for the agency.  Two years ago I assumed the official role as President of Venture, Inc. which is the housing subsidiary of OLHSA and a certified Community Housing Development Organization.  In my role as President I oversee the day to day operations of Venture along with planning future development projects.  Since assuming this role I have developed a strong passion for not only developing affordable housing but also ensuring that affordable units are quality units for the tenants who occupy them.

I enjoy spending time outside up north hunting, fishing, camping skiing, snowshoeing, or hiking.  I am happily married for twenty-five years and have two children who are currently attending college at Northern Michigan University and Michigan Technological University.

My core values are Trust, Integrity, and Service to Others and my personal purpose statement is to serve others through the use of my time, talent, and treasure by utilizing the highest level of integrity and trust.  With the hope that I can have meaningful impact on at least one person, to inspire them to keep moving this charge ahead.
