I am excited to announce the hire of our newest South fundraiser, Steve Sollmann (ND ’04). Steve will begin December 21, working with families in and around his hometown of Cincinnati (formerly covered by Brian Diss), as well as pick up Bill Kempf’s families in San Antonio and Austin. Steve has been working as an academic counselor for student-athletes at Notre Dame since 2011. He was a standout player and captain of the ND Baseball team, earning MVP, All-American, and Academic All-American honors to name a few. He was also a member of the last Irish baseball team to make to the College World Series in 2002. Steve spent four years playing professional baseball in the Milwaukee Brewers minor league system before hanging up the cleats. Prior to returning to Notre Dame, Steve worked for three years at Morningstar, Inc., an investment research firm in Chicago. He and his wife, Kate (ND ’04 and sister of Mark Dumich), have three children: Mae (9), Will (6), Luke (3).
