Hello fellow AUSU members.
My name is Brandon Simmons and I am honoured to represent you on the AUSU council. I been an AU student since 2012 and I am currently enrolled in the bachelor of management program. I just moved to Devon, Alberta with my wife and two little girls (soon to be three).
I am very passionate about AU as it has given me the ability to attend university when I would not have otherwise been able to. I used to work as a contractor but due to high school football injuries my body could not keep up with that line of work. My studies at AU allowed me to transition from the trades into the accounting sector.
AU has also given me other great learning experiences as I had the chance to represent AU in the 2014 and 2015 CPA Board Governance competitions. With all of the experiences I have had from AU and from working as an accountant I have now started a disaster relief charity and a business consulting company.
I am very excited to be on council again and I look forward to all of the great work we have ahead of us.
