The following message to the University community is from York Vice-President Advancement Jeff O’Hagan:
It is with mixed feelings that I announce that Assistant Vice-President, Development, Wade Hall will be leaving York University to take on the role of Vice-President, Campaign at the CAMH Foundation.
Wade began his service at York in 2009 by leading the Development team at the York University Foundation. He played an important role in the final months of the York to the Power of 50 Campaign as it achieved a then unprecedented $207 million result. Wade went on to play a leading role in the creation of the Division of Advancement, which combined team members from the Foundation, Alumni Engagement, and Advancement Services groups. Since the Division’s creation in 2011, Wade has helped shape and mold the Development team, working closely with me, the Faculties, and colleagues all across campus to collectively double annual fundraising results at York.
Wade has also played an important leadership role in the launch and achievements to date of Impact: The Campaign for York University, which has a goal of raising $500 million and doubling the number of alumni engaged in the lives of York’s students and the communities the University serves.
Wade has proven to be a strong leader and collaborator, and has played a key role as an advisor to me, to academic leaders across campus, and to the members of the senior leadership team in Advancement. His steady nature, his support for his colleagues in Advancement and beyond, and his personal management of numerous key donor relationships has been an integral part of our success to date. Please join me in thanking Wade for more than 7 years of contributions and dedication to York University. We wish him great success in his new role at CAMH Foundation.
Wade’s last day at York will be January 20, 2017. A search for Wade’s successor will commence immediately.
