Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey appointed Anita McDaniel Brueck to the University of Montevallo Board of Trustees. She began her 12-year term in May 2023.
Brueck, who graduated from UM with a bachelor’s degree in business administration in 1977, worked in the property insurance claims business for 41 years up until her retirement in 2018. She and her husband, Alan “Buddy” Brueck, started ClaimSouth in 1985, and in 1991 they sold it to a subsidiary of SwissRe. The Bruecks then moved to Chicago to open an office for them, serving multi-national insurers specializing in Fortune 500 and Global 1000 programs for property and business income. They would spend the next 23 years with Sedgwick Claims Management Services.
In her time at UM, Brueck was a member of Phi Mu sorority and was actively involved in College Night. She now funds the Anita McDaniel Brueck ’77 Endowed Scholarship for Phi Mu Members. She and her husband have two daughters, Amy and Becca.
