President Amy Gutmann announced that Medha Narvekar has been named Associate Vice President for Development and Alumni Relations.  Ms. Narvekar takes on this position after more than two years as Interim Vice President for Development and Alumni Relations.

“While she was at the helm of the University’s fundraising efforts, Medha kept Penn on a winning course during a time of change. I am tremendously grateful for her leadership, creativity and collaborative spirit. Medha kept our fundraising momentum high and was extraordinarily successful in meeting goals and increasing donor support in critical areas. Medha’s service to Penn has been truly exemplary, and as she moves into her new role I look forward to continuing to benefit from her wise counsel and superior management skills,” Dr. Gutmann said.

As a senior member of Vice President John Zeller’s management team, Ms. Narvekar will participate in the strategic planning process and collaborate on policy-making for department-wide initiatives. She will also be directly responsible for planning and providing leadership for individual prospect cultivation, solicitation and stewardship.
