Prospect Management has an open position for a Prospect Management Consultant. If you are interested in exploring this position please visit jobs.nd.edu and/or contact Ann Moran, Mark Dumich or Cindy Karpovs.
It is with mixed emotions that I share the news of Patrick Kaiser’s retirement at the end of this calendar year.
Patrick has been a valued contributor to Development since he returned home to Notre Dame in 2012. He has worked in Annual Giving, Major Gifts and most recently as a part of our East Region as a Director of Development. Along the way, he has shared his deep knowledge of the sales process as it relates to our work. Patrick has “carried a bag” for over 40 years, and it is now time for this veteran to pursue other interests.
Please join me in wishing Patrick all the best in this next chapter. While we will miss him on a daily basis – his clever puns, his always-sharpened pencil, his Notre Dame stories – Patrick is staying local so we’ll see him around town. Thank you, Patrick, for your service to Our Lady’s University!
In Notre Dame,
Please note the following changes within the Prospect Management team:
During his three years working in Development, Mark has shown a stellar work ethic, desire for continuous improvement, and commitment to his fellow colleagues. He attacks problems with an analytical mindset and strategic focus. I look forward to working with Mark in elevating the strategic impact of Prospect Management and Strategic Analytics through this new role. Please join me in congratulating him as he embarks on the next phase of his career in serving our Lady’s mission.
Please look for the Prospect Management Consultant position to be posted in the near future. Please let Cindy or Ann know if you or someone you know is interested in the position. Please note, Gerek Meinhardt will serve as the interim Prospect Management liaison to the West Region and Global Advancement until Kierstin’s replacement is identified.
All my best,

Welcome Sarah Ford
The Regional Development Administrative team has truly appreciated all the assistance provided to us during the football season by our spectacular temporary employee, Sarah Ford! I am delighted to announce that Sarah has accepted a full-time position on our team beginning, Monday, December 11th. Sarah will be supporting Debbie Loughran and David Balkin.
Sarah’s mother has worked at Notre Dame for many years, thus Sarah has always felt at home at Notre Dame. A graduate of Georgia Southern University, Sarah enjoys boating, working out, and hanging with her dog, Noel (a Christmas gift several years ago).
