Steve Moore to lead fundraising efforts for WSU business school

Steve Moore has accepted the position of director of development and major gifts within the School of Business Administration at Wayne State University. He will begin his new position on March 17.

Moore joined Wayne State’s Division of Development and Alumni Affairs as associate director of planned giving in December 2012 and has made significant contributions in connecting with alumni and raising awareness about options for planned giving.

Moore has a strong background in banking and finance, having joined WSU from PNC Bank, where he served as the senior vice president and market executive responsible for wealth management activities in Southeast Michigan. Prior to his tenure at PNC, he was the vice president and managing director of Fifth Third Bank and held positions, including director of trust administration and director of business development, at LaSalle (Standard Federal, Michigan National) Wealth Management, where he was employed for 16 years. He is a graduate of Olivet Nazarene University in Illinois, and he is a Certified Trust & Financial Advisor (CTFA) and an Accredited Estate Planner (AEP).

Moore enters his new role at a critical time as the School of Business Administration is coming off a record-setting year in fundraising, and Wayne State University prepares to enter the public phase of its second capital campaign. Interim Dean Margaret L. Williams is confident that he is up to the challenge.

"We’ve already worked closely with Steve in the area of planned giving for the business school, so I think we know what to expect from each other," Williams says. "I look forward to working with Steve; our major gift officer, Heidi Fisher; and all of our talented alumni, friends, faculty and staff to achieve even higher levels of giving to the school."
