David Street, Director of Development and Alumni Relations, joined City in January having spent nine years in a similar role at the University of East Anglia (UEA). Prior to his time at UEA David worked for a firm of fundraising consultants and has been involved in voluntary fundraising roles for many years. He is also an Associate of the Chartered Institute of Bankers.
David’s current role is to develop the University’s relationships with individuals, trusts and foundations and companies who share our vision and objectives. After completing postgraduate qualifications David is very aware of the important role former students can play in the lives of current and future students and cites careers advice, mentoring of students and internships as examples of where the University needs help.
David’s role is also to help identify those who might be prepared to support the University in financial terms to help City meet its continuing challenges in an increasingly changing economic environment.
Sue Rees, Head of Alumni Relations, joined in March and has responsibility for overseeing all of the alumni relations activity for City graduates. Originally from west London, she has over 20 years’ experience in Higher Education, having led the alumni relations programmes at both Anglia Ruskin University and University of Ulster. Last year Sue was awarded a Winston Churchill Travel Fellowship enabling her to spend five weeks in the USA looking at alumni programmes. Sue has a BA Hons in History and Economics, and Diplomas in Management and Education Marketing.
“I am really looking forward to meeting with as many of you as I can over the months to come, and finding out how we can build on the excellent service that the Alumni Relations Office already provides. “
