Deputy Director of Development
University of Warwick
Andrea has over 12 years of experience working in the charity sector. In her current role at University of Warwick, she is responsible for alumni and supporter engagement and development operations. Her experience as a fundraiser informs her approach. She joined Warwick as a major gift fundraiser in 2012 before transitioning into development services in 2014. She transformed the perception of the team by delivering a series of strategic projects to embed a data-driven approach to managing fundraising performance, including establishing a prospect research function. Prior to working at Warwick, Andrea started her career in the charity sector at Threshold in Ireland, gaining valuable experience in regular giving, events, and trusts and foundations. Before working in fundraising, Andrea worked at an eCommerce startup, where she acquired the tech, web, and system development skills that underpin her expertise in systems (and CRM in particular).
