Our Story

Two nice Jewish boys who want to help!

Brad Goverman

Thanks for your interest! If you have gotten this far, you are probably wondering, “who the heck are these guys?” I have lived in Sharon for over 30 years, and along with my wife Sandra, raised our family here, and am currently a member of Temple Sinai and The Sharon Men’s Club. I have recently retired from the high tech business world where I was a consulting Partner at Arthur Andersen and Deloitte Consulting and recently held positions at GE Digital and an Israeli start-up. In order to keep myself busy, (in addition to helping care for my grandson), I decided to team up with Steven on a way to give back to the community, and hence, Mensches with Wrenches was conceived. I credit my father for developing my handy man skills and my mother for whatever mensch-ness I can claim. I also write a weekly blog, The Jew News Review, which is free and open to all. You can check it out here with this link http://www.jewnewsreview.com.

Thank you for visiting our website.  I grew up in Sharon, but now reside in Plainville.  I graduated from the University of Rochester. Then from the New England College of Optometry.  I opened up a private practice in Foxboro and finally decided to retire in 2022.  My dad was a mechanic for Eastern Airlines.  I grew up fixing everything.  Dad taught me well.  Mom?  She cooked for me and I learned how to eat as a result.  I am still practicing that wonderful Jewish tradition.  I like to putter and thought that it would be a good way to spend my retirement.  Helping those who need a hand.  I’ve known Brad since he met his wife (a nice Sharon girl)…40 years ago!  He is the one responsible for the website.  I can barely turn on a computer.  But, don’t worry…I can fix a lot of other stuff.  Brad and I look forward to helping you with those projects that will make your life easier.
