Re:  Appointment of Ms Rivi Frankle as Interim Vice-President
and Chief Advancement Officer


_______________________________________________________________________ 

I am very pleased to announce the appointment of Ms Rivi Frankle as Interim Vice-President and Chief Advancement Officer, approved at yesterday's meeting of the Governing Council.  This appointment is
effective immediately and continues to June 30, 2007, or until a Vice-President is appointed with responsibilities for the Division of University Advancement.

On July 1, 2005, Rivi was appointed Acting Vice-President and Chief Advancement Officer when Jon Dellandrea left the University to assume a position at Oxford.  In that capacity, she performed in an exemplary fashion, ensuring stability and continued momentum in the division.

Rivi has consistently demonstrated her commitment to the University of Toronto and her deep understanding of advancement and alumni relations for well over twenty years.  Over the last decade she has served as Assistant Vice-President, University Advancement and as Assistant Vice-President, Alumni and Development.  Rivi enjoys enormous respect within the University’s internal and external communities.

I wish to thank Rivi for her ongoing dedication, and for undertaking this important role.
