Search firm for athletic director search hired

Northern Kentucky University announced via email today that Parker Executive Search has been hired to assist in the search for a new athletic director. The search team will be visiting campus May 2-3 to “meet with the search committee and several campus constituencies who have a direct interest in our athletics program,” according to the email sent from  Vice President for University Advancement Gerard St. Amand.

There will also be an open session for faculty and staff at 11:15 a.m. on May 3 in the Otto M. Budig Theatre. “This session is an excellent opportunity for faculty and staff to share their ideas about our athletics program and the next person to be selected to lead it,” the email said.
