A Time for Everything


A special announcement about BDI's new President and CEO

From Randy Brewer, Founder/Chairman, BDI


“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens…”
-Ecclesiastes 3:1 (NIV)

Since he joined BDI last May, many of you have met Michael “MT” Tomlinson, Brewer Direct’s President, at the annual Citygate Conference or in personal visits. Or you may have the opportunity to meet him at your Mission or the Brewer Institute in San Diego in late March (mark your calendars!).

MT’s leadership, experience and heart to serve have proven to be everything we sought in BDI’s next executive leader. He was an answer to our prayers when we selected him during our national CEO search.

The Lord has been good to us as we’ve worked to expand our family of talented professionals – men and women who bring their own passion and expertise to serve as your BDI team. Now, with MT in place, we are positioned to move forward.

It’s with confidence, positive expectation, and excitement that I announce Michael Tomlinson as Brewer Direct’s President and CEO.

With this succession, I officially transition to my role as Chairman of BDI’s Board of Directors. In this new capacity, I’ll continue to have a voice in the direction and development of BDI – the industry’s leading faith-first fundraising and marketing agency, driven to release generosity to help a hurting world.

From time to time, I will contribute on issues that speak to releasing generosity to fuel Kingdom work. MT and I have some exciting topics planned for discussion in the coming year, so keep your eyes peeled for that. And I hope to see you in the mission field and also at our industry’s events.

It’s been one of my life’s greatest privileges to start BDI and partner closely with you. We created this agency together – and, oh, how we both have grown! Our collaboration and your courageous work has made a real difference in the lives of so many. You have given me, and all of us at BDI, as much as we’ve provided your Mission. For that, I’m eternally grateful.

Brewer Direct’s best days are yet ahead, and I’m convinced that your Mission was called for a day such as this.
