The Pro Football Hall of Fame recently added three members to its Board of Trustees by naming Johnson Controls’ Chief Marketing Officer Kim Metcalf-Kupres, Hall of Famer Anthony Muñoz, and Tennessee Titans’ Controlling Owner Amy Adams Strunk, to the governing board.

“The Hall of Fame welcomes these three extraordinarily talented individuals to the Board of Trustees,” commented Chairman of the Board Randy Hunt. “Their leadership will provide great benefit to our organization that is positioned for accelerated growth in the future. We look forward to Amy, Kim and Anthony’s contributions to the Hall of Fame and the important mission to Honor the Heroes of the Game, Preserve its History, Promote its Values & Celebrate Excellence EVERYWHERE!”

Metcalf-Kupres is the Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer of Johnson Controls, a global diversified technology and multi industrial leader serving a wide range of customers in more than 150 countries. She is responsible for driving profitable growth and advancing marketing and sales capabilities across the enterprise. In her role as CMO, Metcalf-Kupres directs strategy, innovation and business transformation for the company. She also leads internal and external communications across the corporation. Metcalf-Kupres joined Johnson Controls’ Building Technologies & Solutions business in 1994 where she brought a keen focus on the customer and a strategic approach to business growth. In 2007, she assumed the role of vice president, Sales and Marketing, Strategy and Government Relations in the Power Solutions business, driving strategies for global growth and building core competencies around commercial excellence and strategic marketing.

Muñoz was selected third overall in the 1980 National Football League Draft by the Cincinnati Bengals out of the University of Southern California. Considered by many to be the premier tackle during his 13 seasons in the NFL, he also caught seven passes and scored four touchdowns on tackle eligible plays. His stalwart play was the key to the success that propelled Cincinnati to three AFC Central Division titles and two AFC championships (1981 and 1988). Muñoz was elected to 11 consecutive Pro Bowls and was named All-Pro 11 straight times from 1981 through 1991. He was named the NFL Offensive Lineman of the Year three times and the NFL Players Association Lineman of the Year four times. Muñoz, who is active in many community initiatives, established the Anthony Muñoz Foundation in 2002. His non-profit organization seeks to engage youth from the Greater Cincinnati area mentally, physically and spiritually. Since its inception, the foundation has impacted thousands of children and raised more than $12 million for foundation programs and select charities.

Strunk assumed the role of Controlling Owner of the Titans in March 2015 and serves as the co-chairman of the franchise’s Board of Directors. Since stepping into the leadership position, Strunk has made many changes to stabilize and improve the franchise. Additionally, she has committed significant resources to upgrades to Nissan Stadium and the team’s practice facility, Saint Thomas Sports Park. An independent businesswoman for more than 30 years, Strunk is the owner and president of both Kenada Farms and the Little River Oil and Gas Company. She has been actively involved in the family’s farming and ranching businesses, including serving as the vice president of Bud Adams Ranches, Inc.
