He then moved on to ABC Construction in Lapeer, Michigan, and continued to be active as a Journeyman Carpenter in the Detroit Local #687 Carpenters Union. Following his time at ABC, he became a Traveling Supervisor for the George P Johnson Company. During 2006, Brady transitioned to Traveling Retail Superintendent. He re-entered the commercial construction industry in 2010 as a Retail Construction Project Manager and served in this capacity until 2018. From 2018 until joining First Commercial in 2021, Brady worked as a Senior Project Manager focused on commercial and retail construction.

Brady earned his Bachelor of Science degree from Western Governors University in 2010 and his Master of Business Administration from the same institution in 2012.
