On Sept. 1, the Industrial Supply Association promoted Brendan Breen, formerly the association’s President, to CEO.
The decision to promote Breen was taken in acknowledgment of his “exemplary performance, strong alignment with the organization’s vision, and commendable leadership in driving ISA toward achieving significant milestones,” ISA officials said in Sept. 5 news release.
“His strategic thinking, coupled with a collaborative approach and clear communication, has been paramount in guiding our organization’s direction,” said Rob Keenan, President of SECO Tools and ISA Board Chair. “We believe this elevation of Brendan’s position sends a clear message to our members, partners, and stakeholders about our unwavering commitment to sustained growth and stability.”
MDM sat down with Breen earlier this year to discuss his vision for year-round association engagement, business conditions and more.
Breen said he is committed to deepening the association’s impact and “ensuring we stay agile and responsive to industry dynamics, serving the best interests of our robust network of ISA members.”
In case you missed it, Breen was also featured in an episode of the MDM Podcast ahead of the ISA23 conference in April.
