MSI is delighted to announce that Sean Bruich, Nike, Inc., has been elected Chair of the Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees.

Sean is Vice President, Membership and Consumer Data Science, Analytics, and Insights at Nike, Inc.

Sean succeeds Ed Buckley, UPS, who joined MSI as a Trustee in 2006, was appointed to the Executive Committee in 2009, and served as Chair from 2017-2018. “Ed contributed significantly to the Institute over the course of his tenure,” Cheryl noted. “His commitment to the mission and people of MSI was evident in everything he did. I am particularly grateful for his support and wise counsel during our leadership transition.”
