HAMBURG, N.Y. – Ted Pietrzak has been named Interim Vice President for Institutional Advancement at Hilbert College, announced President Cynthia Zane, Ed.D. His appointment, which is structured as a part-time role, is effective January 2, 2015 through the spring 2015 semester.
Pietrzak has over 25 years of experience in leadership positions in the not-for-profit sector. Since 2010, Pietrzak manages Ted Pietrzak and Associates (TP+A), a specialized consulting firm that serves not-for-profit organizations. Pietrzak had previously served as the Director of the Burchfield Penney Art Center, where he directed and supervised all aspects of the organization. He oversaw the completion of a new 84,000 sq. ft. museum and a successful $36.6 million capital and endowment campaign. The Burchfield Penney Art Center obtained national recognition and Pietrzak increased operating revenue and balanced the annual budgets, which tripled in the new museum.
“With Ted’s more than 25 years of experience in not-for-profit fundraising, we are pleased to have a leader of his ability to serve in the transition as Hilbert’s Interim Vice President for Institutional Advancement,” Zane said. “His background will be valuable in continuing the college’s increased philanthropic efforts. The institutional advancement department has undergone a transformational change, under Gregg Fort, and now has a strong foundation to build upon.”
“I am thrilled to be joining the Hilbert team,” Pietrzak said. “I hope that my experience with not-for-profit organizations, as well as my consulting work in fundraising will assist Hilbert in reaching its goals and even exceeding them. I look forward to working with the highly-dedicated Institutional Advancement team and my new colleagues across the various College divisions.”
Hilbert College will make a determination of the next steps in seeking a permanent leader for Institutional Advancement following Hilbert’s March 2015 Board of Trustees meeting.
