Alumni Spotlight- Brian Bednar, Class XX

Brian Bednar, Scottsdale Leadership Board President
Senior Account Manager, SRP

He’s the guy with the gavel — the head cheese, if you will. He serves a number of leadership roles and was recently honored by Kappa Sigma fraternity as “Outstanding Alumnus Advisor.” Here’s two minutes with Brian Bednar on Scottsdale Leadership and life.

Focus for Scottsdale Leadership:  To create a sustainable organization for another 25 years, grow upon the organization’s great success, build effective working committees, and bring a new planned giving program to the organization.

Favorite Scottsdale Leadership memory: Meeting and escorting Kurt Warner during the our 25th Anniversary Celebration this past year.  I was able to spend some quality time with Kurt and was surprised by his humbleness. He has shown great leadership both on the field and off.

Favorite Scottsdale restaurant/place: Frank & Lupe’s Mexican in Old Town

Leader you’d most like to meet:  Robert Gates, the recent Secretary of Defense. He was previously the President of Texas A&M University, Director of the CIA, Deputy National Security Advisor, and was born and raised in Kansas, my home state. I admire his proven track record of leadership and community service (also being an eagle scout).

Favorite ways to give back: Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Fiesta Bowl, SRP and Kappa Sigma Fraternity Advisor.
