DRi Announces St Andrews Placed Candidate

Development Resources Inc. (DRiWaterstone) is delighted to announce our recruitment of a U.S.-based fundraising team for Scotland’s oldest university, the University of St Andrews.

DRiWaterstone worked closely with the University of St Andrews’ Principal and Vice Chancellor, Professor Sally Mapstone, and Head of Development Robert Fleming to help the University significantly expand its U.S. fundraising effort as it neared completion of a £100M 600th Anniversary campaign and set out on an ambitious new strategic plan. After visiting the University’s Scotland campus and meeting extensively with administrative and academic staff, we developed a targeted recruitment strategy that identified highly-accomplished U.S.-based fundraisers with knowledge of Scottish education.

Search consultant Jeff Johnson led initial searches for a U.S. Head of Development and an Alumni and Family Engagement Manager and is currently directing additional searches to complete the team with Major Gift Officers on the East and West Coasts DRi Searches

Today we congratulate Kathryn Humphreys on joining St Andrews as its first Head of Development in the U.S. Kathryn is an accomplished fundraising leader in American higher education and a former professor of English. She served as the top fundraising officer in the largest school at Cornell University and as Assistant VP of Advancement at Lehigh, where she built an international fundraising program and played a key role in establishing a new Financial Services Lab in the Business School.

Kathryn has been joined by Leah Dalton as St Andrews’ U.S. Alumni and Family Engagement Manager. Leah most recently served as Assistant Director of Reunion & Homecoming at Johns Hopkins University, where she managed all communications, marketing, and volunteer engagement for up to four reunion class committees each year. Leah also worked on special events for multiple units at The George Washington University.

We extend our enthusiastic congratulations to Kathryn, Leah, and St Andrews. To join their team, find more information at DRiWaterstone Searches.

(DRiWaterstone) is delighted to announce the completion of our search for the Human Rights Campaign’s new Director of Estate Planning. DRiWaterstone is the first firm to lead an executive search for development staff at the Human Rights Campaign. We worked closely with HRC’s chief development officer to integrate the new team member into the staff structure in a way that would foster collaboration and facilitate the organization’s growth goals. Our search team built a roster of candidates who were equally adept at planned giving, productive in fast-paced environments, and fully committed to LGBTQ rights. Today we congratulate Jade Bristol Verity on joining HRC as its first Director of Estate Planning. Jade spent five years as an estate and trust attorney before moving into the non-profit sector as the founder of the award-winning KidzCare USA. In her first full-time fundraising role, Jade subsequently transformed a one-person shop into a $5M national planned giving program at the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
