Hillary Brewer joins NIC as Director of Communication

Hillary Brewer is joining the North American Interfraternity Conference team as Director of Communication. In this role, Brewer will lead compelling, industry-wide communication campaigns and strategy for the NIC and the Foundation for Fraternal Excellence. She will collaborate with the team to proactively tell the story of the fraternity experience and will lead communication around initiatives such as Health & Safety, myFraternity and the NIC Awards of Distinction program.

“Hillary’s eye for consistency in messaging and collaboration will be a strength in our advocacy on behalf of our member organizations, fraternity men and the experience,” said NIC President & CEO Judson Horras.

Brewer comes to the NIC from Alpha Omicron Pi Fraternity where she began her career in 2012 as an educational leadership consultant followed by a role in new chapter development for the women’s organization. Since 2015, she served the fraternity in communication roles including Creative Director for their award-winning efforts since 2019. She currently serves a volunteer role as Vice President of Programming on the board of directors for the Fraternity Communications Association.

“Hillary brings a passion for fraternal communications,” said Todd Shelton, NIC chief communication officer. “I believe her experience will provide positive insight to further our communications efforts—particularly in support of the broader constituency of the Foundation for Fraternal Excellence.”

Brewer will begin her new role on July 6 and can be reached at hillary.brewer@nicfraternity.org. She assumes the position previously held by Andrea Benek who departed to lead communication and brand management for NIC member fraternity Zeta Beta Tau.

“I am thrilled to join the NIC staff and continue supporting fraternal communications,” said Brewer. “I look forward to promoting and advocating for the fraternity experience alongside industry leaders and experts.”

Brewer was initiated into Alpha Omicron Pi at Appalachian State University.
