Bianca Chow

Bianca Chow is the Director of Sustainability at Fossil Group and also serves on the Advisory Board for Akola Project. She received a BBA in Marketing and had the opportunity to study abroad in Brazil. Chow brings a wealth of knowledge to ROMA Foundation with her background being in brand management, marketing, sustainability, operations, and merchandising.

This well-traveled native Texan has a heart to give back, motivate others, and encourage underserved populations. Chow’s proclivity to learning about different cultures meshes well with her love of discovering new and exciting places. Oh, and she is quite the coffee aficionado.

Brady Bruner

Brady Bruner is the CEO and Founder of Maximus Life, a platform for Corporate Giving & Volunteering. He graduated from Baylor with a degree in Business MIS / Marketing. His previous work included consulting on various corporate projects; however, his strong desire to serve others led him to the nonprofit world. Helping others to connect with what really brings them life is what this natural problem solver is all about

A servant at heart, Bruner provides a lot of guidance and support to the ROMA team as he seeks to maximize organizations to their greatest potential. When he is not building relationships, giving back, or dedicating his time serving others, Bruner enjoys spending time with his amazing wife, 4 beautiful children, and their precious pups.

Help us make a better world for children!
