Brad is the youngest in a Jewish family, and grew up in the Bronx neighborhood. After high school, he enrolled at the prestigious University of Buffalo, and obtained a degree in business and communications. Even while in university, Brad started gaining practical knowledge, working as a ‘gofer’ for Harvey Weinstein, and producing Frank Sinatra`s concert at the Buffalo War Memorial Auditorium, held in 1979. Furthermore, Brad also attended The Improv group`s events, and soon spotted future comedian Bob Saget, and launched him in New York.

Brad really reached stardom in the 1980s, when he teamed up with the talented Bernie Brillstein, and started Brillstein-Grey Entertainment, through which Brad began his career as a producer. He has produced several successful shows, including “It`s Garry Shandling`s Show” (1986-1990), and several television films plus “The Garry Shandling Show: 25th Anniversary Special” (1986), “Mr. Miller Goes to Washington Starring Dennis Miller” (1988), and “Bob Saget: In the Dream State” (1990), among many others. However, their joint venture ended with a lawsuit against one another, and Grey ventured out on his own; Bernie sold his share of the company to Brad, and Grey renamed it to Brad Grey Television, producing numerous successful television series, variety shows and even films, which only increased his net worth. Some of the most popular titles include TV series “The Sopranos” (1999-2007), “Politically Incorrect” (1996-2002), and “Just Shoot Me” (1997-2003), then films “Dirty Work” (1998), “City by the Sea” (2002), “View from the Top” (2003), and variety shows “The Steve Harvey Show” (1996-2002), “The Larry Sanders Show” (1992-1998), and many other productions, which certainly helped him increase his net worth, but also earned him credit for the position he took in 2005.

Brad Grey became the CEO and chairman of Paramount Pictures in 2005, and since then has overseen the production of numerous high profile films, which have added a substantial amount to his net worth. Some of the films include the “Iron Man” series, “Paranormal Activity” franchise and “Transformers” films, plus “Mission: Impossible III” (2006), “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol” (2011), “There Will Be Blood” (2007), “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” (2008), “Shutter Island” (2010), and “Hugo” (2011), among many others. During his tenure as company chairman, Paramount Pictures has released fewer films than its opposition, however, they have been more successful, earning 20 Academy Awards in 2011 and two less in 2012.

Thanks to his successful career, Brad has received several prestigious awards, including two Primetime Emmy Awards, both for the TV series “The Sopranos” in the category Outstanding Drama Series. Furthermore, Brad received the Gold Derby Award for the film “The Departed” in category Motion Picture, and three PGA Awards for “The Sopranos”, among many other awards.

Regarding his personal life, Brad has been married to Cassandra Huysentuyt since 2011. Previously, he was married to Jill Gutherson from 1982 until 2007; the couple had three children.

# Quote
1 [as executive-producer on ‘The Sopranos’] Whether it was on the HBO side, or the talent side, or the representatives, like everything else, there were negotiations full of testosterone. Because were were talking about The Mob, people started to actually believe they were in the Mob.
2 Some people would say, ‘Come in with a flamethrower,’ and others would take a more measured approach. I quickly realized I had to have my own style and strategy and find my own way. I don’t lack confidence. I don’t sweat. I don’t want to get too Zen on you, but I have to run my own race.
3 I learned no detail was too small. It was all about the details.
