CHICAGO, Oct. 9, 2020 — Shure, in coordination with his family, has announced details for the celebration of life event for Mark Brunner, Shure’s VP of Global Corporate and Government Relations, who passed away unexpectedly on Oct. 1.

The event is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 15 at 11:00 a.m. CT. It will be broadcast online with limited attendance due to COVID-19 restrictions. 

The celebration will include:

  • Shared memories from Mark’s family
  • Remarks from close friends and Shure co-workers
  • Musical performances by Mark’s favorite local bands
  • A video tribute

As he positively impacted a number of people at Shure and within the industry, an online page has been set up to share memories of Mark. He served as a tremendous ambassador for the company, holding several key positions since joining Shure in 1989, including Director of Advertising, Managing Director of the Musical Instrument and Touring Sound business unit, and Senior Director of Global Brand Management. He was instrumental in helping Shure build an even stronger reputation among associates, customers, industry influencers and the public, and was a cherished friend and mentor.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to World Wildlife Fund, as wilderness preservation and the reduction of human impact on the environment were important focus areas for Mark or Chicago Independent Venue League, as Mark loved live local music.

Cards or letters for the family can be sent to the following address:
