Please welcome Dylan Reed to the Southern Region

The Southern Region is excited to announce that Dylan Reed has joined the team as a Regional Director of Development covering a portfolio based in Oklahoma and Dallas Fort Worth. Dylan has made a significant impact on Notre Dame Development over the past 8 years. He joined Development in 2011 as part of the President’s Circle Program. Then in 2015 Dylan became the first Academic Advancement Director for the Keough School of Global Affairs. In the past year, Dylan was the Director of Campaign Strategy and Planning. Dylan will continue to support Campaign Strategy by creating proposals with other fundraisers from time to time given his deep experience with the academy and success of packaging ideas and priorities in a donor-friendly manner.

Outside of the office, Dylan enjoys to spend time with his 7 year old daughter Victoria, teaching her guitar and sharing his passion for camping. Please join me in welcoming Dylan to the Southern Region!
