Brian M. Callies

Founder / President / CEO

Brian began his passion for children who went missing, and later fell victim to tragic situations, in 2015. Desperate to find an organization he could join to make a difference, Brian discovered the lack of productive efforts available. In response, he founded and immediately began operations of the Brian Callies Foundation™. Since 2016, Brian has overseen the steady growth of the organization, including its groundbreaking divisions of “Saving Lost Kids™” and “U.S.I.S.B.®”.

Alynda Callies

Vice President / Accounting

Alynda began assisting the organization, part-time, in 2017. However, after working to protect children and discovering the incredible need, Alynda was inspired to devote herself more. In 2018, Alynda left her 17 year career in Accounting with Memphis Eye & Cataract Associates, to work for the Brian Callies Foundation full-time. She primarily focuses on accounting, managing public events, marketing, and overseeing general operations.
