After growing up in rural Oakland, Nebraska, Chad attended the University of Nebraska – Lincoln and graduated with a Bachelor's in Marketing in 1993.
Chad joined Tagge Rutherford in 1994, serving as Vice President of Marketing and Client Relations, as well as being a financial advisor. He became a partner of the firm in 2004.
As Chief Marketing Officer for Tagge Rutherford, Chad works with his team’s high net worth individual and corporate clientele.
Chad also serves on the Board of Directors with several area charities, handling multiple fundraising events.
When not working, Chad often ponders if the Huskers will ever reclaim their glory days and sneaks in several rounds of golf around his unsuspecting wife. When he’s not on the course, he does love spending time with his wife Tara, and their children—Mack, Cooper and Mae.
