“On behalf of the Board of Directors, we are thrilled to announce Matt’s appointment as NIRI’s new President and CEO. His deep knowledge of the practice of Investor Relations, passion for legislative and regulatory matters impacting shareholder engagement and communication, and expertise in association management uniquely positions Matt to lead NIRI in this next chapter. On a personal note, I have long since admired Matt’s leadership with the Staff, our membership and external stakeholders and his commitment to advancing and elevating the profession. I look forward to working with him closely in the future,” said Victoria Sivrais, NIRI Board Chair and Founder of Clermont Partners.
Brusch has been involved in investor relations and capital markets for nearly 30 years. Prior to joining the NIRI staff executive team, he was a NIRI member leading the investor relations programs for three public companies. In conjunction with IR, he also led an FP&A team and corporate communications. Before this, Brusch served in market surveillance, listings qualifications and relationship management roles with the Nasdaq Stock Market.

“I am extremely honored and humbled by the opportunity to lead this organization that has meant so much to me, investor relations professionals everywhere, and the broader business community,” said Brusch. “This is an exciting time for NIRI. Our professional development programing is strong, for example, and we’re returning to our first in-person Annual Conference since 2019. NIRI is also very active at the regulatory table in DC shaping key rule proposals on behalf of the profession and public companies. And our Board of Directors is finalizing NIRI’s 2022-2025 Strategic Plan. I look forward to working with NIRI’s outstanding professional staff, Board, many devoted volunteers and diverse members throughout the organization to build on NIRI’s strengths, expand its impact, and advance and elevate the IR profession.”
