TBA Welcomes New Executive Director
Bradley J. Lagusch to Lead Toledo Bar
Bradley J. Lagusch has been selected as executive director of the Toledo Bar Association. Lagusch, the Toledo Bar’s 11th executive director, follows interim executive director Trish Branam who has served since January 2016, and previously from 2001 to 2012.
Mr. Lagusch, of Dublin, Ohio, brings significant depth in bar association management from nearly 20 years of experience at the Ohio State Bar Association (OSBA). His experience at the OSBA includes serving as Marketing Manager and Director of Marketing. He is currently the Director of Marketing and Membership for the Ohio Insurance Agents Association.
His tenure at the OSBA allowed Mr. Lagusch to work with many Toledo attorneys who served on the board. “One of the things that attracted me to the position at the Toledo Bar was the ‘Toledo Way’ which I experienced when working with OSBA board members from Toledo over the years,” said Mr. Lagusch. Toledo attorneys are renowned throughout the state and take pride in their culture of professionalism and collegiality that they refer to as the “Toledo Way.”
“Brad Lagusch will lead this historic association into a bright future,” said Toledo Bar Association President Michelle Kranz. “He understands Toledo legal traditions but will bring his energy and commitment to member services, innovative programing and community involvement to his new role. His significant experience in strategic planning and marketing, plus his analytic and management skills, impressed the Search Committee and the Toledo Bar’s Board of Directors.” Mr. Lagusch will begin his position on June 6, 2016.
Mr. Lagusch is a 1993 graduate of Muskingum College and holds a Master in Business Administration from Franklin University in Columbus, Ohio. He is a member of the American Marketing Association and the Ohio Society of Association Executives.
