John Malcolm ’86, president and CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) of Greater Los Angeles, will return to Williams in July as VP for alumni relations and development.
Malcolm currently oversees programs matching volunteer mentors with more than 1,500 youth, most of whom live at or below the poverty level. He previously was VP of philanthropy for BBBS’ national organization.
Malcolm also was director of development at Swarthmore, where he co-organized and oversaw the most successful comprehensive campaign in the college’s history. He was interim director of development and director of major gifts at Bucknell.
“All who met John through the national search process were impressed by his extensive experience in constituency (including alumni) relations, volunteer support, fundraising and management,” Williams President Adam Falk said in announcing the appointment. “His passion for education, especially of people from underserved communities, and building support for education is infectious, and he is wonderfully thoughtful and articulate about the liberal arts and about how organizations communicate their mission and purposes.”
