The annual award identifies the most influential consultants in the profession, highlighting 25 leaders who have made the biggest impact on their clients, firms, and the profession.
A leader in the energy industry, Bradley is known for innovative approaches that help clients position themselves for growth as the industry rapidly transforms. Working across the utility, investor, and manufacturing sectors, a creative and collaborative style has been key to his success during his nearly 20 years with Navigant.
“Dan is a proponent of unprecedented approaches to address the energy transition, and his ability to effect change has had a profound influence on our clients and teams,” says Jan Vrins, managing director and leader of Navigant’s global Energy segment. “We are thrilled to see him recognized for his continual efforts to go above and beyond, and we could not be prouder of him for achieving this significant career milestone.”
Bradley’s most notable recent work centers on his role as managing director in charge of REV Connect, where he is helping the State of New York advance its Reforming the Energy Vision (REV) goals through a first-of-its-kind program that facilitates partnerships between innovative companies and utilities. Through the program, innovative partnerships evolve the utility business model; create new products, services, and value for customers; and drive culture change within the utilities. Bradley pioneered REV Connect’s concept of Innovation Sprints, which fast-tracks strong partnership ideas to meet pressing needs of the state’s utilities. Through his efforts, REV Connect has received hundreds of proposal submissions, gained contacts in diverse industries, reached over 1,000 event attendees, and guided several partnerships into the development phase.
“Every year, the Top 25 nominations show the impact these consultants are having on the profession,” says Joe Kornik, Consulting’s editor-in-chief. “The 2019 Top 25 Consultants include the very best the consulting profession has to offer, and we’re proud to be able to formally honor them for their achievements.”
Bradley, who was selected from approximately 400 nominees, will be featured in this month’s issue of Consulting for excellence in energy. He will accept his award alongside the 24 other leaders in New York on Thursday, June 13, during a dinner at The Mandarin Oriental.
