Indianapolis, February 3, 2020 — Veteran business executive Ryan Temby has joined the North American Interfraternity Conference (NIC) staff as Vice President of Campus Operations for the Southeast region.
Temby will focus on community development, council effectiveness and alumni engagement as he contributes to the NIC’s mission to enhance the fraternity experience. He will facilitate strong relationships by delivering support to communities across the Southeast.
“Ryan brings a fresh perspective, rooted in industry client management and business success, to the NIC. I look forward to seeing the growth of our Southeastern regional communities and the fraternal experience as a whole that will stem from his executive-level leadership skills,” NIC President & CEO Judson Horras said.
Temby has more than 20 years of project management and customer service experience in energy, manufacturing, high tech and retail industries. He brings strong leadership, management and sales skills coupled with a focus on innovation to the NIC.
“My fraternity and the health of the entire interfraternal community have been a passion of mine since I was initiated. I am excited to bring this passion to the NIC,” Temby said.
As an undergraduate at Rutgers University, Temby served as president of his colony and was a founder of his Sigma Chi chapter. He has served as a local volunteer for Sigma Chi since the 1990s, and he assumed international volunteer roles more than a decade ago. He currently serves as grand treasurer for Sigma Chi.
Temby will work from his home in the Columbus, Ohio, area, where he will be accessible to the campuses he serves.
In another staffing change, Archie Messersmith-Bunting has assumed a new role with ForCollegeForLife and will have a reduced role with the NIC. He will continue to provide leadership to the NIC’s Health & Safety Initiatives on a consulting basis.
“We are thankful for Archie’s contributions to the NIC membership and happy he will continue to support our framework that empowers students as they work to shift campus culture,” Horras said.
