Brad Worsham grew up in Port Neches, Texas with dreams of becoming a professional football player or an astronaut. He attended Texas A&M University on a President’s Endowed Scholarship, gained a year’s work experience at a co-op with the Central Intelligence Agency, and graduated Magna Cum Laude with a bachelor’s in aerospace engineering in 1988. Worsham went on to work for the CIA as a missile analyst and SIGINT collection specialist; worked for Lockheed Martin Missiles and Space in Sunnyvale, California as a systems engineer and project lead; MRJ, Inc. in Northern Virginia as a consultant to the National Reconnaissance Office; and ultimately, as a co-founder, chief technology officer, project manager and system architect for BIT Systems, Inc. He designed a number of satellite mission management systems, wrote several hundred thousand lines of software code, and was ultimately responsible for generating over $200 million in contracts at BIT Systems. His travels include Iraq and Pakistan, with extensive time in the United Kingdom and Australia.

Worsham retired in 2014 after 28 years of support to the intelligence community, and currently lives on the Chesapeake Bay in Virginia with his wife, Liz. He’s the proud parent of two daughters: Alyssa, who graduated from UCLA with a Bachelor of Science in environmental science; and Haley, who graduates from Texas A&M in May with a Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering. He recently received an Airline Transport Pilot rating in Cessna Citation 500 family of business jets, and plans to pursue his commercial helicopter rating on the path to becoming a certified flight instructor in both airplanes and helicopters. Worsham has been a member of the Aerospace Engineering Advisory Board since 2014, and is currently the chair.

Worsham’s $2.5 million contributions and commitments to Texas A&M include President’s Endowed Scholarship, Endowed Century Club Member, two aerospace engineering undergraduate scholarships, Hagler Institute of Advanced Studies Graduate Fellowship and Zachry reconstruction.
