Bradford Kent Integrated Solutions traces its roots back to a high school basketball court, circa 1993, where Jim Bradford Hays and Brian Kent Galloway first started working together as teammates. In 2006 they found themselves going “back to school”, having been hired on by the same high school they had both graduated from years before. Jim became the school’s first Director of Information Technology and Brian headed up the Facilities Department. While collaborating on countless Facilities and Technology projects, an informal partnership was formed and a business idea began to take shape. In early 2012, Bradford Kent Integrated Solutions, LLC, was founded, and while it is no longer about layups and no-look passes, the same spirit of teamwork continues to excite Jim and Brian as they work together on behalf of their clients.
