Chestertown, MD, April 26, 2002 — The President's Office and the Board of Visitors and Governors of Washington College are pleased to announce the appointment of William MacIntosh as Vice President for Development and Alumni Relations. MacIntosh will develop new financial resources for the College and continue to press the five-year Campaign for Washington's College to its planned completion in December 2003. The Campaign has already reached $80 million, surpassing its original five-year goal of $72 million.
MacIntosh brings more than 25 years in finance, fundraising and management experience to the College and will work to advance and to strengthen its network of corporate, foundation and individual support. He earned his degree in economics from Harvard College and his MBA from Harvard Business School. MacIntosh has been an independent financial consultant for Crown Central Petroleum and other firms over the past five years and previously served as Vice President of Financial Services for PHH Corporation, based in Hunt Valley, MD, where he managed the firm's financing and investments. Prior to this, MacIntosh served as Director of Treasury Services for Pepsico International in Purchase, NY, and was Vice President of Finance for the Nestlé Trading Corporation in Stamford, CT. He has also been active in the non-profit field as President of Sail Baltimore, the City's official, all-volunteer committee for visiting ships.
Heading the production of its OpSail Baltimore 2000, he worked with participating embassies, local and international corporations, and government agencies to organize this event that brought worldwide attention to Baltimore's rich maritime history and culture. He and his wife Kay, editor of STYLE magazine, currently live in Phoenix, MD, but are planning to relocate to the Eastern Shore with their two boys.
"I am really impressed with Bill's personal attributes and the high regard with which he is held; these strengths will lend themselves to success in this new position," said Jack Griswold, Chairman of the Board of Visitors and Governors of Washington College.
"Bill will be an outstanding leader in development at Washington College and a great asset for us as we work to open new avenues of funding," said Dr. John S. Toll, President of the College. "His proven expertise in management and his ability to build relationships will be invaluable as we move to complete the current Campaign for Washington's College."
MacIntosh will succeed Robert G. Smith, who will retire in June after leading the College's Development Office and directing the Campaign for Washington's College for four years. Smith has been instrumental in growing the College's total endowment from $25 million to well above $100 million and lifting the Campaign well above its original goal 20 months ahead of schedule. He will continue to act as a senior adviser to President Toll and the College's Development Office.
