While at William & Mary, Pieri led all aspects of the university’s development program and foundation, successfully leading the college to the conclusion of the $518 million Campaign for William & Mary. During his tenure, he spearheaded the top three fundraising years in the university's history, and under his leadership, the 319-year-old college experienced its best fundraising successes ever, including record dollars raised, number of donors, reunion giving, and alumni donors.
“We are pleased to welcome Sean Pieri, who will bring an incredible track record of fundraising success as well as great leadership and enthusiasm to Colorado College’s advancement efforts,” said CC President Jill Tiefenthaler. “Sean’s ambition, energy, and personality fit CC’s innovative spirit, and I’m confident he will further spark the enthusiasm of our alumni, parents, and friends who already love the college. His outstanding background will serve us well as we build Colorado College into an even greater higher education leader.”
