Brad D. Smith

Marshall University President, former Intuit CEO, leadership coach and philanthropist

Brad D. Smith is a proud West Virginia native and Marshall alumnus with a passion for philanthropy and leadership. Formerly the CEO of Intuit, Brad is focused on helping facilitate change by developing, supporting and investing in people. His most recent work focuses on unlocking economic and lifestyle prosperity for all West Virginians and beyond through the Wing 2 Wing Foundation that he co-founded with his wife Alys.

Prior to serving as the CEO of Intuit for 11 years, Brad’s career spanned four industries leading large, global organizations through turn-around, transformation and high growth environments. He has served as the Executive Chairman of the Board of Intuit, Chairman of the Nordstrom board, and a board member of Momentive (formerly SurveyMonkey) and Yahoo. He currently serves on the Humana Inc. Board of Directors.

Brad earned his bachelor’s degree from Marshall University and his master’s degree in management from Aquinas College in Michigan. In 2016, he was awarded a Presidential Honorary Doctor of Business Degree from West Virginia University. His commitment to giving back to West Virginia runs deep and the work of the foundation is focused on three proven pillars for creating sustainable social and economic success: education, entrepreneurship and the environment. The Wing 2 Wing Foundation provides increased access and support for education, entrepreneurship mentoring and investment, and works to position West Virginia as a showcase for the nation, where doers can come to fulfill their dreams while preserving the natural beauty of Appalachia.

Outside of his role at the Wing 2 Wing Foundation, Brad also serves West Virginia as the President of Marshall University.
