New Development Officer at Sertoma

November 29, 2017

We are excited to announce that Brian Riegel is Sertoma’s newest Development Officer!

Brian comes to us from the Parkinson Foundation Heartland Chapter, where he increased walk revenues in his first year by 117% (from $105K to $218K). Before entering the nonprofit sector, Brian worked at UMB Bank for 22 years.

He has degrees in both business administration and design, and has a background in both for-profit and not-for-profit environments. As a professional fundraiser he’s worked as a Development Director and Special Events Director, with additional experience in: volunteer management, donor stewardship, major donor programming and broad development training.

In his new role, he will focus heavily on fundraising and building relationships outside of the organization.

For fun, Brian is an avid estate sale and thrift store shopper. He’s always looking for unique antique and vintage items for the antique booth he has with his husband.  His creativity and ambition make him a great fit for Sertoma.  Brian is looking forward to building a new home here.
