Redstone Highlands Welcomes New Vice President for Fund Development
Former Pittsburgh Theological Seminary VP Lisa Dormire joins senior living community
Greensburg, Pa. (PRWEB) December 12, 2010
Redstone Presbyterian SeniorCare is pleased to welcome Rev. Lisa M. Dormire to its Christian, non-profit senior living communities as the vice president for fund development.
As a member of Redstone’s leadership team, Dormire will plan and execute strategies in the areas of fund development, external public relations, internal resident relations, and donor relationship development, specifically for Redstone Highlands’ benevolent care fund, which provides for residents who outlive their financial resources.
Dormire has more than 16 years of experience in fund development, advancement, public relations and marketing, alumni relations, and seminary relations. Most recently Rev. Dormire served as the Pittsburgh Theological Seminary vice president for seminary relations, a position she held since 2007. In this role, Dormire served as the chief communications officer for internal communications and external public relations, foundation relations, and supervising alumni relations and activities. She also focused on building campus community and enhancing the Seminary’s hospitality toward visitors.
Prior to her role as vice president for seminary relations, Dormire was named vice president for Seminary relations and development at the Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. She was the first woman to obtain a vice president position at the Seminary. In this role, Dormire’s staff and volunteers raised the most annual funds and capital gifts in the Seminary’s history. Dormire joined the Seminary in 1994 where she worked in various areas of the administration including public relations, alumni relations and development.
“Lisa’s professional experience and knowledge of fund development and campus relations will be an enormous asset to Redstone,” said John Dickson, president and CEO of Redstone Highlands. “Her background with Pittsburgh Theological Seminary also makes her an excellent cultural fit for our Christian, non-profit senior living community.”
“I am very excited for the new and different challenges my position at Redstone will bring,” said Dormire. “I have admired Redstone Highlands’ dedication to its residents, its employees and the community for a long time and am proud to be a part of the organization.”
Dormire holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications Arts from Grove City College and a Master of Divinity from Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. She was ordained in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and is an active member of the Redstone Presbytery. Dormire is also the proud mother of two college students. She adopted her daughter from Cambodia in 1991 and is still an active adoption advocate.
