Brian Couch joined Seton Catholic Schools to be a part of the team that is creating a uniquely capable model for Catholic education that is both inspiring and critically important for students and their communities. He spent seven years before joining Seton as an advancement and fundraising leader in Catholic higher education at the University of Notre Dame and Ave Maria University. Brian is passionate about Seton’s work to prepare disadvantaged students from a young age to ultimately be ready for success in high school, and then higher education if that is their interest.
The first twenty-five years of his career were spent working in industry, primarily aviation, including executive business leadership roles with Honeywell, GE, Eclipse Aviation and Dana. He enjoys applying the skills acquired during his time in industry to working with faith-based organizations that are passionate about their mission. He graduated from the University of Notre Dame with both bachelors and master’s degrees in civil engineering.
Brian and his wife Beth have five children and four grandchildren. They both enjoy time with family, travel, and are avid sports fans.
