Combining practical experience in the public policy arena with an academic career spent studying the intersection of beliefs and actions, J. Bradley Studemeyer enjoys working with clients to untangle their most complicated strategy problems and provide guidance on the route forwards.
Always working to place his explanations and advice in the context of the “big picture,” J. Bradley is as adept at analyzing the efficiency of an organization’s procedures as he is at transforming the raw numbers of a data set into an accessible and compelling narrative. A firm believer in the power of candor, he seeks to provide clients with strategies that are clear and practical.
Prior to coming to NP Strategy, J. Bradley spent two years working with Dr. Bruce Cole, former Chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities, at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, a think tank in Washington, D.C. His work at the think tank included coordinating research on federal spending, contributing to articles that appeared in publications such as The Wall Street Journal, and analyzing shifting voting patterns for a bipartisan study of the 2016 presidential election. Following Dr. Cole’s death in January of 2018, J. Bradley completed work on Cole’s last book, Art from the Swamp.
J. Bradley earned a Master’s degree in Comparative Studies at Harvard University, concentrating on interactions between religion, public policy, law, and business, and a Bachelor’s degree in Religious Studies from the University of South Carolina, where he graduated with honors from the South Carolina Honors College.
A Carolina native, J. Bradley is thrilled to be back in the Columbia area, and he lives in Irmo with his wife, Catherine, and cat, Grover Cleveland.
