Luck Announces MAC Staff Addition

Posted:

West Virginia University
Director of Athletics Oliver Luck announced today that Dan McLean has
joined the Mountaineer Athletic Club staff as a major gifts officer.

        McLean comes to WVU after spending the last two years at Fresno
State, serving as the director of major gifts before ascending to the
assistant athletic director for development position in July 2011. At
WVU, he will work toward securing high-end annual gifts and funds for
major capital projects, as well as endowing student-athlete
scholarships.

        In his last year at Fresno State, McLean managed the day-to-day
operation of the Bulldog Foundation, including the annual fund, major
gifts and sports clubs. He also was the administration's operational
liaison with the BDF Board of Directors and assumed responsibility for
the organization. McLean led fundraising efforts that raised more than
$7 million annually for Fresno State Athletics as a part of the $200
million University "Campaign for Fresno State."

        "We are excited to have Dan join our team in the MAC," says
MAC Executive Director Matt Borman. "I know he and his family are
looking forward to being in Morgantown and a part of the WVU community.
Dan's experience and personality make him a great fit with our staff,
and I think our donors will enjoy working with him."

        Within the past year at Fresno State, McLean was the lead
solicitor on a $205,000 gift and two $100,000 gifts toward construction
of the Sports Medicine Center. He also collaborated on a $1 million gift
for the Linguistics program and oversaw a $1 million planned gift for
the women's softball program.

        Throughout his first year at Fresno State, McLean was a driving
force behind the Bulldog Stadium FieldTurf project, including direct
contributions of $100,000 in gifts, other capital campaigns and
significant donations for student-athlete scholarships. He assisted in
the implementation of a new priority season/parking program and
revitalized The First Team Full Scholarship program.

        McLean previously served as an athletic development assistant at
Fresno State from 2008-09. In between his different appointments at
Fresno State, he served as the regional director of development at
Oregon State University's Beaver Athletic Student Fund from July 2009
– August 2010. While at OSU, McLean was involved with fundraising
efforts that raised more than $10.5 million annually for OSU athletics.
He also was directly responsible for implementing two new giving
programs: "110% Beavers" and "Next Level Beavers," which
resulted in more than 1400 donors increasing their donation and over 800
new donors generating upwards of $1.1 million in new revenue.

        "Joining the MAC is a tremendous opportunity, and my family is
excited to become a part of the WVU family," McLean says. "I hope to
continue the strong case for support of all Mountaineer student-athletes
while working with such an accomplished staff and a passionate donor
base."

        McLean received his bachelor's degree in applied arts from
Central Michigan University in 2004 and his master's degree in sport
administration from Wayne State University in 2007. He and his wife,
Lindsay, have one son, Moxon.

        Also within the MAC, Borman has been elevated to Associate
Athletic Director/Executive Director. John Matsko is now the Assistant
Athletic Director/Director of Annual Giving, and Ben Murray will assume
the role of Associate Athletic Director/Director of Major Gifts.
