Brad Oleshansky

Founder & CEO

Brad Oleshansky spent the first 12+ years of his career as an entertainment attorney in Los Angeles, CA, including roles at Virgin Records, The Walt Disney Company, a boutique Beverly Hills law firm and several global marketing services agencies. He moved home to Michigan in 2004 to join digital marketing firm Big Communications in its infancy as Chief Operating Officer. He oversaw the rapid growth of the company as it focused solely on the pharmaceutical and biotech industries, and then orchestrated its sale in 2008 to Meredith Corporation (NYSE: MDP). After the acquisition, Brad took on the Chief Executive Officer role and was responsible for the consolidation of all healthcare related business under the MXM Health brand.

Brad left Meredith Corporation in December 2012 to develop and build M1 Concourse (, a $75M+ auto enthusiast destination in Pontiac, MI. Against significant odds, Brad built M1 Concourse into the largest private garage community in the world and the premiere destination for automotive inspired events. Brad exited M1 Concourse in early 2019 so he could launch The Motor Enclave (, the first ever unified brand for experiential automotive communities. The Motor Enclave is currently developing projects in Tampa, FL and Nashville, TN.

Brad is a graduate of Ithaca College (Ithaca, NY) and Southwestern University School of Law (Los Angeles, CA). He is a member of the California and District of Columbia Bars. Brad is an active member of the Young Presidents’ Organization (YPO) and on the advisory board of Ann Arbor, MI based venture capital fund, Huron River Ventures. He is also a board member for ORT, a global charity focused on education.

Brad is a two-time winner of the prestigious Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award (in 2012 for Big Communications and 2018 for M1 Concourse), and currently serves as a judge for the competition.
