LEBANON, TN – After the conclusion of an extensive search process, the Executive Office of Sigma Pi Fraternity, International is proud to announce that Joe Drain (Florida State ’10) has been promoted from Regional Director to Assistant Executive Director. He will begin serving in his new role on March 15, 2017.
“Joe has continuously performed at an exceptional level during his time on the Executive Office staff,” said Executive Director Jason Walker (Georgia ’96). “His skillset and past experience at the university level give him the tools to succeed in this role, and I’m confident at what he will bring to the organization at the next level.”
Drain joined the Executive Office staff in August 2015, serving as the Region II Director and supporting chapters and colonies across the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic. Prior to working at Sigma Pi, he worked with several SEC universities and their fraternity and sorority life systems. In those capacities, he oversaw the various Greek housing operations at the University of South Carolina and the University of Arkansas.
“During his time as Regional Director, Joe provided excellent service to our undergraduate members, which is evidenced by the legacy of success he leaves behind in his Region,” said Grand Sage Steve Lawler (Iowa ’82). “I’m excited that his enthusiasm, energy, and expertise will be elevated and amplified in his new role as Assistant Executive Director.”
Drain is an alumnus of the Fraternity’s Eta-Epsilon Chapter at Florida State University, where he was part of the rechartering efforts in 2008. He then went on to attend graduate school at Auburn University and received his Masters in Higher Education Administration. In June of 2014, he married his college sweetheart, Kelly Brosnan (a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma at Florida State), who he met thanks to Sigma Pi and their on-campus involvement. When not working on projects for the Fraternity, Drain likes to watch the Florida State Seminoles pursue national titles, visit family and the beaches of sunny Florida, and get outdoors with his two dogs.
”I am honored to be aiding the Fraternity in this new role as it continues to make progress as a preeminent Greek letter organization,” said Drain. “Sigma Pi has positively impacted my life in so many ways, and I’m only as good as the people I work with, so I look forward to continuing to create a culture of excellence with a great team at the Executive Office.”
