Scott Bryant, executive director of development for the Scheller College of Business at Georgia Institute of Technology, has been named Kennesaw State University’s associate vice president for development, effective Aug. 1.
Bryant will develop and manage the fundraising strategy for KSU, cultivating a donor base and managing “major gift prospects,” according to Tammy DeMel, a spokeswoman for the university.
DeMel said Bryant will oversee a team of 20 staff, encompassing areas such as annual giving, major gifts and corporate, foundation and donor relations.
“I am excited to join the Kennesaw State family and work collaboratively with university leadership, staff, faculty, students and alumni of all ages,” Bryant said in a university press release. “I am dedicated to creating and contributing to a dynamic work environment to achieve incredible results, and I look forward to this opportunity to help take KSU to the next level in its rise as a nationally ranked university.”
DeMel said Bryant was “instrumental” in helping the Scheller College of Business surpass its $175 million fundraising goal as part of Georgia Tech’s $1.5 billion fundraising campaign. He also led his development team to bring in $7 million per year on average, she said.
Bryant’s new position will bring him an annual salary of $185,000, DeMel said.
