WARREN – Bryan L. Howard Sr., program facilitator at Winning Futures, was recently elected by the National Black M.B.A. Association Detroit chapter to serve as president.

The NBMBAA assists in the creation of intellectual and economic wealth within the African-American community through programs and services that promote education and career exploration, leadership and professional development, and economic prosperity. With 600 members, the Detroit chapter is one of the largest NBMBAA chapters.

As president, Howard plans to focus on strengthening NBMBAA through strategies that will groom the next generation of African-American professionals for success, build stronger community partnerships, and expand into new markets including Grand Rapids and Lansing.

“We play an important role in helping young African-American students see and attain a bright future, while helping current professionals achieve their greatest success,” said Howard. “Our strategies will feed the success pipeline and ultimately have tremendous impact for African-American professionals and the communities they live in.”

Howard is a strong believer in the power of leadership and has spent most of his career advocating for his country and community. At Winning Futures, he participates in the curriculum design and facilitation of Workforce Prep – an innovative and nationally recognized school-based mentoring and life skill development program for Metro Detroit high schoolers.

Prior to joining Winning Futures, he was the process excellence manager for the Detroit-based facilities management company, Powerlink, and served 20 years in the U.S. Navy as a hospital corpsman, retiring with numerous recognitions and citations for his exemplary work. He currently serves on the Wayne State University Black Business Student Advisory Board.
