Griffin Lamb is the College’s new assistant dean for development and college relations and executive director of the NC State Engineering Foundation. She succeeds Brian Campbell, who left the College in November for a similar position at Virginia Commonwealth University.
Lora Bremer, executive director of major gifts and campaign planning for the Foundation served as interim director of the Foundation during a national search for Campbell’s permanent successor.
“Brian arrived at NC State in October 2011 and in these seven plus years has provided great vision and leadership for our development efforts,” said Dr. Louis Martin-Vega, dean of the College. “His accomplishments include significant enhancement of alumni engagement both regionally and nationally, major increases in alumni participation at NC State Homecoming activities, and enhancement and growth of department alumni recognition events and many related efforts.”
Lamb joins the College from East Carolina University, where she served as associate vice chancellor for development in the Division of University Advancement. Her higher education experience also includes positions at Harvard University and Davidson College.
Lamb holds a B.A. in English from Davidson College and a Ed.M. from the Graduate School of Education at Harvard University.
During Campbell’s time at NC State, the College saw its endowment and the number of endowed professorships both double. He led the College’s fundraising efforts for Fitts-Woolard Hall, the newest engineering building on NC State’s Centennial Campus and the first public-private building project in the University’s history.
