Dear Alumni, Donors, and Friends of Vanguard University,
As the university grows, leadership changes were recently announced in the administration. As close partners in both financial support and prayer, we wanted to share these exciting new changes that will continue to further the mission and legacy of Vanguard University.
Kelly Kannwischer has been strongly serving as the vice president for university advancement since 2010. Kelly will continue to serve the university, now in the role of vice president for administration and public affairs. In this new, vital role, Kelly will remain working at the cabinet level, providing administrative and planning leadership to university operations. Kelly will also support and enhance the university’s ability to achieve its core mission by maintaining outstanding facilities and infrastructure, which includes effective and efficient support services for students, faculty, and staff. In addition, the VP for administration and public affairs role includes promoting and managing the university’s brand through marketing and communications strategies.
Justin McIntee `98, MBA `08, who has been serving Vanguard as associate vice president for development and campaign management since 2012, will assume the role of vice president for university advancement. Moving forward, Justin will lead the development team and alumni relations on campus, providing strategic leadership for the university’s advancement plan – this includes development, donor and alumni relations, and all campaign activities. Before Justin returned to Vanguard in 2012, he served as director of major gifts at Mission Hospital. Justin will lead the advancement team as a proud two-time alum of Vanguard, with a Bachelor of Arts and Masters in business administration.
Kelly and Justin will continue to work closely together to engage our alumni, friends and supporters to the life of the university.
