Meet Josh Brewer

What’s standing between the status quo and growth? A small step beyond what’s comfortable and what’s assumed. As the curious one of the bunch, Josh helps clients and coworkers take those small steps by asking why at least 5 times and by identifying the opportunities in every root cause.

Prior to his time at 502, Josh has worked in rural communications and for clients in food value chains, but is happy to bring a curious approach to any industry, usually prefaced by a smile and “let me ask a stupid question.”
