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 also had the opportunity to study abroad in Brazil. Due to her background being in brand management, marketing, sustainability, operations, and merchandising, Chow brings a wealth of knowledge to ROMA Foundation.

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 and Volunteering. He graduated from Baylor with a degree in Business MIS / Marketing. His previous work included consulting on various corporate projects. Because of his strong desire to serve others, Bruner was led to the nonprofit world. However, helping others connect with what they love to do 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. When he is not building relationships, giving back, or serving others, Bruner enjoys spending time with his amazing wife, four beautiful children, and their precious pups.

And thank you for helping us Give Poverty The Boot. As a result of your kindness, we can give!
