As a media sales professional and multimedia specialist at WEEK-TV/HOI-ABC/MY59/CW, Brad Stegall works with local and regional clients and advertising agencies to share their message with consumers across central Illinois. He handles the station’s digital and television marketing, and helps grow the business through marketing and the acquisition of new clients. He also owns his own real estate company, BCS Properties, managing 20 tenants while maintaining his position as a leader in the advertising business.
Outside of work, Stegall dedicates much of his time to volunteering for the Rotary Club of Peoria, helping to further its mission to educate youth, feed the hungry, assist veterans, eradicate polio, promote peace and improve the well-being of others. A three-year board member, he developed a service-oriented “Go-Givers” program to engage members, increasing volunteerism and engagement by 50 percent over a two-year period, and led a record-breaking recruitment campaign that added 20 new members in six months. Through Rotary, he has volunteered with Midwest Food Bank, South Side Mission, Tee It Up for the Troops, and the St. Jude Shrimp and Corn Boil, as well as the Reading Buddies program at Trewyn Middle School. For all of his contributions to Rotary, he was recognized as a Paul Harris Fellow.
Stegall serves on the board for Echelon Peoria, the National Young Adult Auxiliary of The Salvation Army, and on the Peoria Civic Center Sales and Marketing Committee. As an ambassador for the Peoria Area Chamber of Commerce, he was recognized as New Chamber Ambassador of the Month earlier this year, and he has served on the Membership Committee of Business Network International (BNI) since 2003. He also volunteers with the Peoria Area Mountain Bike Association and at Northwoods Community Church, where he teaches classes to help people get out of debt and find financial security. iBi
