Governor Laura Kelly appointed Buddy Sell, Wichita, to the State Use Law Committee.

The State Use Law Committee works to advise the Kansas director of purchases on issues surrounding the purchase of products and services that are provided by blind or disabled persons.

“Buddy is an outgoing, goal-oriented individual who is passionate about making sure that people who are blind or visually impaired have the resources they need to thrive,” Kelly said. “We appreciate having him on our team. I know that his knowledge will assist in providing more employment opportunities for Kansans who are blind or visually impaired.”

Buddy Sell, Wichita, currently works as the senior vice president of operations for Envision, an organization that works to improve the lives of people who are blind or visually impaired. Previously, he worked as the vice president and general manager for Envision Xpress. Sell received a bachelor’s degree in psychology from East Carolina University, and a mini Master of Business Administration certificate from Wichita State University.

The governor appoints five of the nine members on the State Use Law Committee. Her appointments are not subject to Senate confirmation.
