Along with numerous years of recognition as one of Inc. 5000 and Orange County Business Journal’s ‘Fastest Growing Private Companies,’ the company has received accolades from several organizations for its community involvement, cost efficiency, and customized solutions. Brandon works alongside many fellow Kappa Sigmas through Breeze IT and attributes a great number of his career achievements to the relationships he forged within the brotherhood.
Brandon is an incredibly active member of his community. In partnership with another Gamma-Rho brother, David Gosselin ‘01, he founded a young professionals’ group focused on community service and business networking. He has been involved with multiple othernon-profits over the years, including Elite OC, Orange County Rescue Mission, East San Gabriel Valley Coalition for the Homeless, Orangewood Children’s Home, and Orange County’s UA alumni chapter, OC Cats.

During his time as an undergraduate, Brandon was a dedicated member of the American Marketing Association and the Student Alumni Association within the Eller College of Management. He served as Gamma Rho’s pledge educator alongside Chris Bergen ‘03 and speaks immensely fondly of his years in the house. “Gamma-Rho has meant so much to me. My whole adult life can be attributed to my time at U of A with the brothers. My business partner is my pledge brother from Gamma-Rho, my best friend is my pledge brother from Gamma-Rho, all of my best friends today were brothers of mine at the U of A… my life would not be the same."
