Robert R. Boivin has been appointed Advisor to the Concordia University Foundation for a five-year term. He will assist the university in identifying and cultivating potential donors. The appointment was made by Vice-Rector Marcel Danis, who is president of the Foundation.
Mr. Boivin brings a wealth of fundraising experience to Concordia. He has spent nearly 20 years planning and executing capital campaigns in the education, health and cultural sectors that often exceeded their financial goals.
He first worked with Concordia during the university's capital campaign in the 1980s, and has since run campaigns at the Universities of Sherbrooke (two campaigns), Montréal and Moncton, and for the Foundation of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.
We welcome Mr. Boivin to his new position, and wish him every success.
