"Steve is the real deal. We first met through what became a legendary speaker series class. My respect for his knowledge, experience, wisdom and personality grew from there. I've long admired his professional accomplishments, so it was easy to recommend Steve to Boston University's Media Ventures MBA program. What I didn't expect was that we'd have the chance to teach this class together and that has been a special pleasure. I've had so much fun working with Steve. He brings great energy, passion and know-how, not to mention a tremendous network of leading professionals. Each week we learn something from each other, engage with the students, all of us finish each class with more than we where we began. Respect multiplied!"

-- Don Levy, President and Cultivator at Smith Brook Farm & (fmr) SVP Marketing & Communications, Sony Pictures Digital
"Steve's long history in digital media and marketing brings depth, wisdom and savvy to his clients, employers and colleagues.

Both strategic and tactical, with the deal-making skills to turn both into revenue, and a masterful rolodex, he brings value to every opportunity."

-- Joey Tamer, Strategic Consultant to Internet & Digital Media Entrepreneurs
"I have always found Steve to be extremely knowledgeable as well as a genuinely nice guy who is dedicated to advancing our industry through his networking abilities. He is also a guy who "gives back" and I have been honored to be a part of that effort at UCLA."

-- Daniel Tibbets, Chief Content Officer, Machinima
"I met Steve in 2011 at a Digital Hollywood conference, and was impressed by his grasp of the subject matter and skill as a panel moderator. As our friendship has grown over the years, I’ve often sought his ideas and advice especially given how successfully he grew Zazoom. I always look forward to connecting with Steve—he has a great combination of hands-on experience, industry knowledge, and life perspective that makes every conversation valuable and a pleasure!"

-- Jonathan Hurd, Director, Altman Vilandrie
"I've known Steve a while as a long-time professional in the technology world. I guest-lectured in a class he taught in the Spring of 2016 for Boston University and found him to be well prepared, thoughtful, able to draw on his vast store of experience and also current on many of the fast-evolving trends in social media that affect the students in his master's class in marketing for the Media Ventures program."

"My recommendation for Steve Bradbury is simple and direct: Steve is a detail-oriented individual who dives into tasks with vigor and tenacity. Steve impressed me, and the GoTV Networks team, on a personal and professional level with his integrity and approach to the business.
Professionally, Steve has leveraged and added to his marketing / strategy background into senior business affairs / business development roles as he rounds out his career experience. His inquisitive mind brings perspectives to broader conversations as he seeks to first understand issues and challenges and then craft the best way forward.
While I look forward to working with Steve again, I am currently referring him to start-ups and early stage opportunities - eagerly and without hesitation. I am confident they, and others, will be satisfied with the results."

-- Tom Ellsworth, President/COO, PHP Agency & (fmr) CEO, GoTV Networks
"Steve was able to take our needs to the market and produce excellent results. I would hire him again and have no reservations about recommending him to others."

-- Mark Lonow, Co-Owner, The Improvisation
"I have known Steve Bradbury for about 20 years. During that time, Steve has overseen marketing departments in both traditional television syndication as well as new media. Steve was one of the first marketing executives I knew who was aware of and promoted the digital world as an entertainment and informational platform. He is known as an excellent manager, innovator and is very well respected within our industry. I would highly recommend him for any position that can utilize his wide ranging skill set."

-- Alan Daniels, (fmr) SVP, Marketing, Sony Pictures Television
"Steve is a dynamic and thoughtful senior executive with very diverse skills. He is equally adept at leading complex deals and analyses as he is with marketing and communications.

-- Erika Callahan, VP, Marketing and Communications, Museum of Flight & (fmr) VP, Family Entertainment and WW Corporate Marketing, Warner Bros.
"Steve was doing interactive biz dev pre-Web and has stayed ahead of the curve. He can make challenging deals happen not just because he understands the legal, technical and creative issues, but because he knows how to make sure each party gets what they need. His goal is a successful relationship and product offering, not just getting a signature or an advance."

-- Laura Foti Cohen, Principal, Sound Input LLC, & (fmr) SVP, Philips Media

"I worked with Steve while he was at SpringGreene on my first entertainment marketing promotion for McDonald's.

It would not have happened without the efforts of Steve."

-- Bob Schneider, President/CEO, Desert Adventures & (fmr) SVP, Frankel and Co.
