Ryan Minter has been appointed annual giving officer for Virginia Tech’s Office of University Development.
In his new role, Minter works one-on-one with donors and prospects to benefit the university’s annual giving program and to build relationships in support of Virginia Tech’s overall fundraising efforts.
“Ryan is a welcome addition to our team,” said Randy Holden, director of annual giving. “His knowledge of the university is an invaluable asset in communicating with other Hokies.”
Minter earned his bachelor’s in management from Virginia Tech in 2010.
“Because I am an alumnus, I have a direct connection to the Hokies I encounter in my position with annual giving,” Minter said. “I enjoy meeting members of the extended Virginia Tech family, learning how their successes have evolved, and providing them with opportunities to enhance the experiences of future Hokies.”
Prior to joining University Development, Minter served in the Virginia Tech University Bursar’s Office interpreting Internal Revenue Service forms and assisting students in financial matters.
