I’m thrilled to announce the hiring of our newest Gift Planning Officer, Rich Naponelli. Rich comes to Notre Dame from a successful private legal practice, most recently with the law firm of Perkins Coie, LLP, where he was an attorney in the Trust and Estate Planning group in Chicago, Illinois. His practice focused on creating business and estate plans for individuals and family groups to facilitate succession planning and wealth preservation. Prior to Perkins Coie, LLP, Rich was an attorney at Winston & Strawn LLP and Madden, Jiganti, Moore & Sinars LLP. Rich will support the West region and have a portfolio of prospects in the old “central region” within the West.
Rich graduated from Notre Dame in 2003, earning a bachelor’s degree in business administration. He earned a Master of Science in Accountancy from Notre Dame in 2004, before earning a law degree from Loyola University Chicago School of Law in 2007. Rich and his wife, Jennifer, have two children: Ally and Trey.
Rich starts with us on Monday, August 17th–please join me in welcoming him in a couple of weeks.
