Relationships Between Presidents and ADs

Friday, January 29, 2016

Witt/Kieffer principal Greg Santore has recently collaborated with Forbes columnist Jason Belzer on two in-depth articles exploring the relationships between college presidents and athletic directors. The pieces include extensive interviews with presidents and ADs themselves, representing Michigan State University, Texas Christian University, Butler University, Amherst College, Columbia University, and others. Higher education presidents and athletic directors have complex relationships, they note, but the two parties must get along for their institutions to succeed in the marketplace.The articles are available in Belzer's "SportsMoney" column at the following links:
