Troy University has named Greg Knedler the new Associate Vice Chancellor for Development.
Knedler, who comes to TROY with more than 20 years’ experience in development and higher education advancement, will start on Feb. 1. He currently serves as the Vice President for Class and Constituent Development at the Air Force Academy Foundation.
“Greg is a capable leader with a strong track record of success in leading fundraising teams,” said Dr. Jack Hawkins, Jr., Chancellor. “I am thrilled that he is joining the Troy University family and I am confident his expertise will help us meet and exceed our development goals to fuel TROY’s growth.”
At the Air Force Academy Foundation, Knedler leads a team of fundraising, research and data analytics professionals that execute departmental fundraising goals while supporting operations for the foundation. In addition to his work with the Air Force Academy, Knedler held positions at Georgia State University and Auburn University.
“It is such an honor to get an opportunity to be a part of such an incredible institution like TROY that is doing such amazing things locally, nationally and internationally,” Knedler said. “I am truly looking forward to returning to the great state of Alabama and becoming fully immersed in everything it means to be a part of the Trojan Nation.”
Maj. Gen. (Ret.) Walter D. Givhan, Senior Vice Chancellor for Advancement and Economic Development at TROY, said Knedler’s experience and skillset make him well suited to lead the University’s Development Office.
“Greg has excelled at every opportunity in his development career, and the skills he brings to TROY will enable us to grow and expand our base of support. I’m excited about bringing him on the team, and I’m eager to introduce him to the Trojan Nation.”
