Title: VP of Institutional Advancement and Alumni Relations
Years of Experience at St. Mary’s: Past president of St. Mary’s 2013-2015; member of the SMH Board of Trustees from 2007 to 2013 and 2015 to 2019; current role from 2019 to present
Where Have You Worked Prior to Coming to SMH: 40 years in wine and spirits importing sales and marketing
Education Background: B.A. University at Buffalo ’83 and St. Mary’s Class of ’77
Fun Facts: Through my wine and spirits career, I had the opportunity to work with various celebrities, including Olivia Newton John, Jerry Stiller, Leslie Zemeckis, and most recently, Bruno Mars during the 24k Magic Tour. I have been fortunate to have traveled extensively throughout North America and Europe. As the first president of St. Mary’s, I gained an appreciation for the private school education system and after two years of restructuring the school, was able to turn the reins over to Kevin Kelleher who has taken the school to the next level. It is great to be back working with Kevin which has given me an opportunity to connect with many of my classmates and other alumni. After meeting with hundreds of alumni, I am in awe of the successes they have had. In the past few years, I have been able to pursue an old passion of acting and have been in several stage, movie and commercial productions. Much of what I have been able to experience, I attribute to the life and classroom lessons I learned here at SMH. My wife Eileen and I are also the owners of Au Naturel Mastectomy Boutique. We have two grown and married daughters and four grandchildren.
