Griffith was hired as an Associate Director of Chapter Services in August 2014. His primary responsibility was to be a resource to chapters in Districts 2 and 4. A year later, he moved into the role of Director of Certification & Reporting, which is part of the fraternity's business operations team.
"Throughout my time on the Fraternity staff, I have enjoyed developing connections and friendships with undergraduate and alumni brothers who are actively leading the charge toward a better Phi Psi," Griffith said.
Griffith's primary responsibilities as the Director of Advancement Services will be to oversee and direct gift processing, reporting, prospect management and prospect research. He will also be responsible for oversight of all database management, as well as data accuracy, integrity, and security.
"I'm personally pleased Patrick will be joining the Foundation's advancement team. He brings both a working knowledge of the Fraternity and a strong analytical and strategic background. He is well suited for this role," said Ben Nicol, CEO of the Phi Kappa Psi Foundation.
The fraternity is excited for Griffith to take on this new opportunity; his impact on the staff will be missed.
"Patrick has added a depth of insight to our chapter processes. His contributions to our new certification program were invaluable," said Blake Yeaman, Phi Kappa Psi Interim Executive Director.
Griffith will officially assume his his new role in mid-January. He can be reached at PDG@pkpfoundation.org.
Details about the Director of Certification & Reporting position will be available in the coming weeks.
