Brad Pollard has come full circle on his return to Lennox Head and the Northern Rivers, after spending his youth living at the Lake Ainsworth Sport and Recreation Camp while his father was a principal. He attended Lennox Head Public School, Alstonville High School and then landed a scholarship to study aeronautical engineering at the University of Sydney.
Brad completed his degree and got a job with Qantas, but quickly realised his passion and interest lay more in the area of computing and digital marketing. He began working as a consultant in computing and web design and development, work that now forms the heart of his online web design and digital marketing business Fat Digital.
Brad’s business has grown organically over the years, mainly through referrals and repeat custom. The success of Fat Digital and the mobile nature of the work has enabled his family to move back to Lennox Head where he continues to service a range of businesses, including Network 10, Moran Art Prize, Molinari Coffee and a glass blower from Binalong.
Brad’s work enables him to be a stay-at-home, work-at-home dad, looking after his boys while his partner Felisimina works as a small business advisor. His focus, now that the two boys are at school, is to grow his local Northern Rivers clientele and to build the business overall, to employ locals and support local businesses.
Brad volunteers his time as treasurer of the Lennox Head Chamber of Commerce and the Love Lennox Festival. He enjoys working on Chamber initiatives that strengthen the vibrant Lennox Head business community.
In joining the Lennox Chamber Fat Digital has gained new business referrals as well as it being just a great way of meeting and socialising with fellow business owners.
