Congratulations to Fiona Duffy, who formally takes up the role of Director of Development and Alumni Relations this month.
Fiona joined Darwin last year, working with the Development Office in a consultancy capacity. Following the departure of Sam Venn, she has fulfilled the role of Interim Development Director for the past six months, and we are delighted that, after an extensive recruitment process, she has been appointed to the position permanently.
The Master, Dr Mike Rands, said:
“Fiona brings a wealth of experience to Darwin. Most recently, she was Director of Development at Murray Edwards College where she led a successful fundraising campaign. Prior to that she worked in development roles at University College, London and the London School of Economics as well as The Imperial War Museum. As we enter into our 60th anniversary year, I look forward to working with Fiona, Hannah and a new Development Team to enhance our fundraising and alumni relations activities.”
“I’m delighted to be appointed at a very important moment, as we anticipate the 60th anniversary of Darwin College. The support of alumni and donors, with time and expertise as well as philanthropy, will be fundamental to the success of the College in the coming decades. I look forward a great deal to meeting alumni around the world as well as in College and working together towards these ambitious goals.”
