Pfeiffer names new vice president

Pfeiffer University President Michael C. Miller has named Bobby Stewart vice president for advancement at Pfeiffer.
This is the first executive appointment Miller has made since he assumed the position of the university’s ninth leader on Dec. 1. Prior to his latest appointment, Stewart most recently served as the university’s interim chief operating officer (COO) and athletic director.
“Bobby Stewart’s extensive knowledge of Pfeiffer and its academic and athletic programs will stand the university in great stead as he leads its advancement efforts,” said Miller.
“Pfeiffer is building upon its traditional strengths and embarking on new programs such as nursing that will require a strong advancement and development effort and Bobby is the right person to lead those important initiatives.”
As vice president for advancement, Stewart will be responsible for the execution of a broad-based development and fundraising strategy to secure financial support from individuals, corporations, foundations, alumni and friends of the university. He will also oversee the activities of Pfeiffer’s alumni relations, public relations and communications initiatives.
Stewart will continue his role as COO. In that position, he helps to maintain the day-to-day operations and serves as the primary liaison between the university and its legal and financial partners. He provides oversight of Pfeiffer’s financial aid, business affairs, athletic areas, and assists related departments within the university to help them operate at peak efficiency.
Stewart came to Pfeiffer in 2004 as director of athletics. In 2007, he was named special assistant for then Pfeiffer President Dr. Chuck Ambrose. He earned a bachelor’s degree from Wake Forest and a law degree from the School of Law at the University of South Carolina.
Established in 1885, Pfeiffer University is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year. Visit Pfeiffer at www.pfeiffer.edu or www.facebook.com/pfeifferuniversity.
