Maureen Barry P’21 has been named Vice President for Advancement, Regis President Rev. Christopher Devron, SJ, announced today.
Since 2001, Barry has served as Director of Development and Community Relations at Saint David’s School, where she oversaw annual giving as well as capital and endowment campaigns. Barry also directed Saint David’s marketing communications strategies, guided the school’s annual benefit auction gala, and evolved its alumni program by building long-term relationships within the community.
“We are blessed to welcome Maureen, whose experience, background, and skills as an advancement professional are well-known to many in the field,” said Fr. Devron. “Maureen brings a strong commitment to the mission of Jesuit education, which was formed as a student at Fordham University and as a recent Regis parent.”
Prior to her time at Saint David’s, Barry worked in the Development & Alumni office at Trinity College in Dublin before establishing a development program at Dublin’s Sutton Park School.
“It is an honor to be Regis High School’s new Vice President for Advancement,” said Barry. “As a Regis parent, I’ve been a member of the school community for six years, and I’m excited to extend this relationship by joining Fr. Devron and Regis’s Advancement team in support of the school’s mission to offer an exceptional, tuition-free Jesuit education.”
Barry completed her undergraduate studies at Fordham University, received a master’s degree at Iona University, and earned a Certificate in Fundraising Management and a Certificate in Nonprofit Executive Leadership from Indiana University’s Lilly Family School of Philanthropy.
Barry succeeds James Kennedy ’02, who earlier this year was named President of Brooklyn Jesuit Prep.
