I know that this isn't technically advancement services - but I am slightly biased and am really pushing for an annual giving director who is metric driven and interested in working closely with advancement services/development operations staff. This position is already posed for success. The college is beautiful, the students are stellar, and the entire advancement team is smart and geared up to learn and use the RE NXT database. Our current director of annual giving has created a path for the new person that is strategic and focuses on metric-based results. If you or anybody you know fits this role - send them my way!
