Bradley Corp. announced that Bryan H. Mullett, president of the company’s Fixtures Business Group, was awarded the Business Journal’s “Forty Under 40” Award for 2011. The 18th annual award honors 40 Milwaukee-area individuals under the age of 40 who are making a positive difference in their professions and communities. 

“Just like other years, it was very difficult to pick just 40 winners as there were many nominees who are making a major impact in their business or in our community,” said Business Journal editor Mike Kass. “But we’ve always stuck to the [under-40 age group] because it represents a turning point in a person’s career, a time in [his or her] life when [he or she is] still climbing the corporate ladders and trying to make a difference.”

Mullett’s nomination was chosen by a panel of judges among more than 230 submissions from the greater-Milwaukee area. Highlights of his nomination included his growing involvement in leading Bradley Corp.’s fixtures business, and how he feels a deep sense of responsibility as the fifth generation of his family to lead the business, which is celebrating its 90th anniversary this year.

“I feel like I have an obligation to build on the foundation that’s been created for future generations,” Mullett said. 

In addition to his leadership role at Bradley, Mullett has also shown his commitment to ice hockey and has been the assistant coach at Arrowhead Union High School in Hartland for 10 years, helping to bring home a state championship for the program for the 2008-2009 school year. The passion for ice hockey runs deep throughout the Mullett family: The Howard G. Mullett Ice Center was donated by Bryan’s father, Donald Mullett, to the Arrowhead School District and was named for Bryan’s grandfather, Howard G. Mullett.

In addition to carrying on two important family traditions, Mullett stays active in the community.  He is an ongoing contributor to the United Way, the Menomonee Falls High School Foundation, the Plumbing Manufacturers International, Young Presidents Organization, and other associations.
