Michigan Technological University
Attending his first NACRO conference in 2012, soon serving a two-year role as co-chair of the marketing committee before his three-year commitment to the executive committee, Adam has been dedicated to, and passionate about the organization and now serves as co-president. For the past number of years, Adam has been largely a key liaison between corporations and the University, helping discover, manage, and create sustainable partnerships that support the University's mission and fundraising priorities. As an engineer, entrepreneur, and development professional, he has specifically taken on leadership responsibilities for top-priority funding initiatives with high-value corporations and individuals. In the past number of years, Adam has been successful in a central, yet cross-functional role across the College of Engineering, the College of Arts and Science, and the Honors College - reporting through to the VP of Student Affairs and Advancement and the VP of Research. It is his belief - and practice - that successful, modern fundraising requires consistent, creative engagement across an institution, and with the individuals, corporations and foundations that have a desire to make an impact. Adam currently serves as the Director of Advancement for the Pavlis Honors College and the University’s brand new College of Computing.
