SCHAUMBURG, IL, ISSUED August 30, 2022…Pulse Technology ( Branch Manager Brandon Cork of Broadview, IL, has been named to the Board of Directors of the Boys and Girls Club of Elgin (Boys & Girls Club of Elgin (, serving the Schaumburg Community Board.

The & Girls Club of Elgin says that it measures its success on “how well we motivate and encourage our Club members to positively develop and graduate from High School on time with a plan for their future. We believe the best way to provide encouragement is through relationships with caring adult staff who work to provide the hope and opportunities our young people need to succeed.”

The Club traces its history to 1993, following discussions between the City of Elgin and the Elgin Police Department who sought a solution of escalating drug and gang problems.  The Club staff and board members quickly realized the need for the community’s youth to have a safe after-school place. The Club, with support of community and foundations, embarked on a capital campaign to raise funds to support construction of a 15,000 square foot facility. The Club now serves multiple communities and more than 2000 youths per year.

“It’s a great honor to serve on the Board of this organization,” Brandon said, adding, “We appreciate the good work that the Boys & Girls Club does to help students in our region. They make a real difference in many lives.”

He serves as a Branch Manager at Pulse Technology; prior to Pulse, the Robert Morris University graduate (bachelor’s and master’s degrees in business administration) was a sales manager for Canon Solutions America and worked in admissions for both DeVry University and Colorado Technical University.

A native of Gary, IN, he has been part of many volunteer and community activities through his career, including work with Habitat for Humanity, Illinois Action of Children, AID (Association for Individual Development) and Sojourner Truth’s House (Gary, IN). His outside interests include playing basketball, skating, and bowling. Family is important to him also, he says, mentioning that he enjoys spending time with his children.
