It is with great pleasure that I announce that Patrick Borders has joined the Operations & Technology team in Annual Giving & Strategic Marketing as Marketing Specialist. Patrick recently graduated from Wake Forest University’s School of Business with an MBA in Marketing & Entrepreneurship. He served as marketing intern in the Wake Forest athletic department while attending school, with responsibility for pre-game marketing activities, operations for in-game promotions and evaluation of the impact of football ticket pricing changes. In addition, Patrick worked as a Social Media Strategist for Crippen Auto Mall in Lansing, MI.
As Marketing Specialist, Patrick supports the execution of all cultivation, solicitation, and stewardship communications by fund and segment leaders in the Annual Giving & Strategic Marketing team. His responsibilities include creating targeted messaging across all AGSM segments and communication channels (mail, email, phone, social, web), with the overall goal of fundraising, increasing total donor count, and brand awareness. In addition, he manages all aspects of the Proud to Be ND social presence, including strategy and execution.
Please join me in welcoming Patrick to the University Relations team.
