Senior Development Consultant
Chad has nearly 20 years of fundraising experience in major gifts, fund development, and campaigns. He has worked with organizations in the higher education, human services, public media, and healthcare sectors. He believes in using technology to help strengthen fundraising activities, while still focusing on the importance of relationships. Chad knows that fund development solutions are not one size fits all and has seen firsthand the power of community-driven fundraising. He has been a part of larger development departments, led teams, and worked in small operations. This varied background gives him a wide array of experience to lean on as he works with organizations to achieve their development goals. Chad holds a degree in political science from Oklahoma State University and holds a Certificate in Fundraising Management from the IUPUI Lilly School of Philanthropy.
Outside of the work, Chad has been a pianist and church music director for over twenty-five years leading traditional and contemporary worship and directing church choirs and praise bands. Chad and his wife Jillian have two boys, both pursuing an education in music and musical theatre.
