We are pleased to announce the hire of a new Director of Gift Planning, Aaron Fricke. Aaron will be starting with us on Monday, Sept 24th. As you know, we’ve had this position open for a long time as I couldn’t find the right candidate for the role. I think we found the right one with Aaron and believe he will be worth our wait.
Prior to joining Notre Dame, Aaron Bart Fricke practiced law with Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck in Las Vegas, Nevada, and specialized in ERISA litigation and multiemployer plan matters. Prior to Brownstein, Aaron practiced with Maupin, Cox & LeGoy in Reno, Nevada, and specialized in Trust & Estates, ERISA, and tax planning for high net worth families, individuals and business owners. Aaron graduated from the University of Notre Dame Law School, and the University of Nevada, Reno, with a Bachelors of Science in Business Administration, with a major in Logistics. Born in Fargo, North Dakota, raised in the Columbia Basin of Washington, and a long-time resident of northern Nevada, Aaron is a product of the American West, who feels perfectly at home at his beloved Notre Dame. Aaron is a U.S. Navy veteran, and an avid amateur athlete, outdoorsmen and traveler, having most recently walked the Camino de Santiago from St. Jean, France, to Santiago de Compostela, Spain.
Aaron wanted me to share with the team that he is both honored and overjoyed to be joining the Development Office and is fully dedicated to helping Notre Dame fulfill its mission and reach its funding goals. Aaron will be in a temporary office to begin, seated near Peg Jewett until we make space for him in our cozy area.
Please help me in welcoming Aaron next week (although I’ll be in NYC and Jersey!).
Greg Gregory G. Dugard, Senior Director, Office of Gift Planning
