KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
Knowledge of facts, theories, principles, as well as the guided application driven by understanding. It is this understanding that leads to effective decision-making, cultivated by a healthy balance between deliberate and instinctive thinking.
The character of an organization being defined by the contribution it can make to the community around it.
An organization’s commitment to its members, it's workforce - it’s life force, by providing a physically and emotionally safe and healthy environment, where opportunity and empowerment are essential tools for all.
The pursuit of new, creative thinking in order to provide solutions to our most challenging problems. As we embark on a new, technology-driven century, we must place a premium on unique growth, breakthrough creativity, and fresh, bold ideas, in place of the traditional business of conventional thought.
The unique variety of thought and perspective that comes from a diverse workforce.
The strengthened goals developed from an inclusive organization. Our institutions must value the ever-changing mosaic of our global society and global economy.
The nurturing of the next-generation of thought leaders, of businessmen and women, of managers and servicepersons, of creators and developers, of scientists and educators, artists and civil servants, and those who seek to make a difference. Our processes always include a focus on strengthening entire teams, providing them a voice to be heard, a renewed confidence to develop ideas, and a platform to enact meaningful change.
The authenticity, the honesty, and the genuine trust that the BSC name carries. My goal is to conduct business, and guide organizations along the path chosen not only by the bottom line, but by the path forged by a life of character and honesty.
FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT
Jonah Brown hails from the small town of Richmond, KY, and is a 2002 graduate of Madison Central High School. Jonah answered the call to lead at an early age, taking on numerous leadership roles in his high school, his church fellowship, and in his community.
He attended college at the University of Kentucky where he obtained a Bachelors Degree in Political Science with Minors in African-American Studies and Spanish. While at the University of Kentucky, he served in numerous leadership roles, including an Ambassador for the University, Student Body President, and Trustee on the University of Kentucky Board of Trustees. He developed an active role in his campus community, in the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government, as well as a student lobbying presence with the state legislature in Frankfort. As President, he managed a half-million dollar operating budget, developing programs and dispersing funds for student organizations, campus diversity, women's safety, disability resources, and residence life. As a board member, he provided financial, administrative and policy oversight to the operations of the university.
He is a graduate of the University of Kentucky College of Law, and is admitted to Kentucky Bar. He began his career as Staff Attorney to Fayette Circuit Court Judge James D. Ishmael, managing the 3rd Division's civil docket, reviewing briefs and writing legal opinions for civil matters. Following his clerkship, Jonah accepted a position as Assistant Director of Admissions and Multicultural Recruitment Coordinator at Transylvania University, a small private liberal arts college in downtown Lexington. In addition to managing multiple geographic territories, Brown was responsible for implementing the Trailblazers Scholarship Program, a new multicultural academic scholarship program consisting of an academic monetary award and a two-day on-campus scholarship interview program. Brown also wrote and designed a new diversity recruiting publication, targeted specifically to student prospects from underrepresented backgrounds on campus. Brown's efforts helped contribute to significant increases in application, admission and acceptance numbers for these students.

In this role, he handled a diverse caseload of insurance defense cases including medical malpractice defense, nursing home malpractice defense, engineering and construction malpractice defense, and products/premises liability, as well as a growing number of debt collection matters.
