Bohan and Bradstreet

Who Is Bohan?

Bohan happens to be the middle name for several in the Bradstreet family and it was the maiden name of Ed Bradstreet's, B&B's president, mother, but the real Bohan is a dog and here is his story.....

Ed Bradstreet started this business in 1987 and his partner was Bohan. Bohan was the CCO (Chief Canine Officer) and Chairdog of the Board. The intriguing part of the story is how they met.

Prior to 1987, Ed was looking for employees to start a business.  He set-up a temporary office at street level and posted a sign that read, “Recruiter Wanted. Must like people. Must be able to type. Must be good with the computer. Must be bilingual.  We are an equal opportunity employer. Apply within.”

It was to Ed’s surprise that Bohan waddled into the office and with an undaunted flair, jumped into the chair, wagged his tail and gave him the “I love you” grin with his pink tongue hanging out between his lips. Ed looked at this dog and said, “I can’t hire you. You have to be able to type.” 

The rest is history. That is the true story of Bohan.
