Marianne Lord '75, MA '79, and Robert Millar MBA '00 have been named associate vice presidents in the Boston College Development Office by Senior Vice President for University Relations Mary Lou DeLong.

Lord has been apointed associate vice president for leadership gifts. In this capacity, her primary responsibility will be leadership gifts ($100,000-$999,999) as well as the development liaisons with individual schools and colleges.

As associate vice president for administrative services, Millar will supervise all of the department's system information, research, technology, record updates, programs and events, and bookkeeping and donor reports.

"These two key appointments will add great strength to our staff leadership," DeLong said. "Marianne has extensive experience as a seasoned professional and a strong rapport with many of Boston College's leading benefactors as well as the University's academic community.

"Rob's in-depth knowledge of technology combined with his ability to manage and motivate his team are just two reasons for his well-deserved promotion.

"Both Rob and Marianne will be major players in the critical effort to bring our development efforts to a new level of excellence," DeLong said.

Lord has been a member of the University's development team since 1984, when she was named director of planned giving, a post she held for the next four years. She was appointed special assistant to the dean and director of development for the Boston College Law School in 1993 and rejoined the Development Office in 1996 as associate director of leadership gifts. Lord was also director of leadership gifts and director of capital giving prior to her latest promotion.

Millar, a 1987 graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, joined the University Development staff in 1992 as director of development services. He was appointed director of development advancement services in 1998 and has supervised all technology-related issues in the office since that time.
