Assumption College President Francesco Cesareo has announced that Timothy Stanton will become vice president for institutional advancement at the College effective August 22, 2012. Stanton was most recently associate vice president for advancement operations at the University of New Haven in Connecticut.
At Assumption, he will supervise the Division of Institutional Advancement, including major gifts and planned giving, the annual fund, alumni relations, research and advancement services.
“Timothy Stanton brings extensive fundraising and corporate experience to Assumption College,” said President Cesareo. “Our national search has brought a dedicated professional who appreciates the unique attributes of our College, especially our Catholic and Assumptionist identity, and who will work closely to build even stronger relationships with our alumni and friends of Assumption College.”
Stanton had worked at the University of New Haven since 2007. Prior to that, he was executive director of development and alumni relations at Sacred Heart University for two years; and director of planning, administration and operations at Choate Rosemary Hall for four years. He had been in banking for more than 20 years, with his last position at Hudson United Bank as senior vice president and sales director. Prior to Hudson United Bank, he served as vice president of Shawmut Bank for seven years, working in Connecticut and Massachusetts.
“I am both excited and honored to assume this position with Assumption College,” said Stanton. “I look forward to working with alumni and friends of the College to further the mission of this wonderful institution.”
Stanton has his law degree from the University of Connecticut School Of Law and his B.A. from Amherst College. He replaces Tom Ryan, who left Assumption earlier this year to be chief advancement officer at St. John’s High School in Shrewsbury, Mass.
Stanton and his wife Colleen have three children, and live in Cheshire, Conn.
