When Andrew Brady was growing up here, everyone he knew wanted to leave Rochester and never come back.
A Rochester native, Brady went away to college at Cornell University, then lived in Boston for a few years. In 2012, he moved back to Rochester–and found a city undergoing a transformation.
Now president of Rochester Young Professionals, the largest local young professionals organization with 8,000 members, Brady says Rochester has new energy and is a magnet for a growing number of people in their 20s and 30s.
In a wide-ranging interview with Rochester Beacon publisher Alex Zapesochny, Brady discusses the positives and negatives of Rochester for young professionals, what sets younger workers apart from others, conscious capitalism and much more. Listen to their conversation.
