Brett Gerlach grew up in Minnetonka, Minnesota. He attended BYU, served a mission in Helsinki, Finland, and returned to BYU to study Computer Science, where he met and married Vicki Richards. A summer internship with Microsoft led to fulltime work there, first developing software for printing in Windows, and later developing software to help manage large networks of computers. Brett eventually finished his bachelor’s degree at the University of Washington and went on to complete a Master’s in Business Administration at the Wharton School, where he was awarded the Benjamin Franklin Award and graduated as a Palmer Scholar for outstanding scholarship. Ten years ago, while completing his MBA, Brett left Microsoft to start Brevium, a software company that helps medical practices identify patients that need care and contact them. In 2006, Brett moved the company and his family to Utah. He currently serves as President and CEO of Brevium. The Gerlachs have ten children, two graduates of American Heritage and three others now attending. The Gerlachs have fallen in love with the school, and earnestly hope that its influence can grow to bless many more families.
