Brad Barghols, Chief Executive Officer of the Oklahoma/Arkansas Region

Brad Barghols is the Chief Executive Officer of the Oklahoma/Arkansas Region for the American Red Cross. He joined the American Red Cross in late 2015, bringing more than 25 years of non-profit experience and business acumen to the region.

A native of Oklahoma City, Barghols grew up in Des Moines, Iowa but returned home after high school to attend the University of Oklahoma, where he earned a bachelors degree in finance.

Prior to joining the Red Cross, Barghols worked for the Muscular Dystrophy Association where he began as a district director in Tulsa, Oklahoma and ended 26 years later as chief executive of the Western District at the national MDA headquarters in Tucson, Arizona.

Brad’s successes include an enterprise-wide reorganization, which incorporated creation and leadership of multiple staff engagement/retention strategies. Barghols’ leadership enabled him to head the "Innovation and Change Committee.” In this role, he was directly responsible for the creation and implementation of many culture building and staff development initiatives.

Brad and his wife Shannon have been married 24 years. They are blessed with two sons and a daughter.
