27 Aug Warren Brand, owner of Chicago Corrosion Group, to fight in upcoming Brazilian Ju Jitsu Tournament to raise money in the fight against cancer
Was top fundraiser in 2018
Skokie— August 14, 2019 — Warren Brand, owner and founder of Chicago Corrosion Group, has announced his intent to participate in “Tap Out Cancer,” a not-for-profit national event where BJJ competitors from around the Chicago Area compete and raise funds for cancer research and support.
“I was deeply honored last year in raising more funds than anyone else at the event,” said Mr. Brand, a longtime student of various martial arts and BJJ white belt. “I hope to do the same this year.” When asked about winning his division he said, “I came in third in a field of three last year,” he chuckled. “I’m not remotely concerned about winning. As long as I don’t get hurt and I don’t hurt my opponent, I’m good.”
Chicago Corrosion Group was an upstart firm when it first rolled out in 2011. Mr. Brand coined the phrase, “corrosion mitigation consultant” and stood the industry on its head by competing directly with major paint suppliers and others by providing vendor-neutral, owner-centric corrosion-mitigation optimization and consulting. Since 2011, CCG has consulted with some of the largest firms in the world, and most recently was awarded the role of lead consultant for the iconic Crown Fountain in Chicago.
Brand remains a prolific technical resource, writing multiple articles and blogs for JPCL magazine and PaintSquare.com.
