As associate director of technology with a background in sales and marketing, Brian streamlines information flows, data sets and processes
at the UND Alumni Association & Foundation. By leveraging the data he collects, he helps us to better serve our alumni and friends.

In his “off time,” Brian provides business and leadership coaching to aspiring executives. A big fan of the Fighting Hawks, he seldom misses     a hockey game. He enjoys camping, cars, motorcycles, reading, and hunting with family and friends

Brian spent 32 years as a partner in a local firm, leading a talented team who designed, implemented and supported the technology infrastructure for hundreds of local companies. He served virtually every area of the company, including sales, marketing, engineering, and project management, and eventually became the CEO. He then took a position as program manager with a similar technology company from South Dakota, helping to launch a Grand Forks presence and onboard more than 100 new local clients through an acquisition.
