I am delighted to announce that Ms. Tammy Barbin, who is currently working as the Entrepreneurship Program Coordinator for the Business and Enterprise Division, has been appointed Interim Director of Development. She will assume her duties July 13.
She previously worked as an Event Manager in Conference Services on campus, and held positions as Director of Contract Administration and Director of Corporate Marketing for Gapvax, Incorporated, as well as Business Development Manager at L. Robert Kimball & Associates, among others.
In her new role, Ms. Barbin will be responsible for managing the operations of the Development and Alumni Relations Offices.
Following the departure of Mr. Jesse Pisors to his new position as Vice President for Advancement and External Affairs at the University of Houston - Victoria, we initiated a search for a new Vice President of Institutional Advancement, as well as an Executive Director of Development. Once again, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Pisors for his diligence, hard work, and energy.
As we continue to search for a Vice President for Institutional Advancement, it is important to maintain the continuity of operations. Ms. Barbin is a highly dedicated, motivated, and energetic person who takes great pride in her work, who loves to serve, and who has made many positive contributions to our community. Ms. Barbin will bring her considerable experience to sustain momentum in the department as we prepare to launch our capital campaign.
Please join me in congratulating to Ms. Barbin on her new appointment.
