JGA is very happy to announce the addition of Andy Canada to our team.
After thoughtfully considering for some time the need to enhance our team and increase our staff capacity - with someone who could live up to JGA’s highest standards of customer service and professionalism - we identified Andy as the newest member of our team.
Andy has honed a strong reputation as a professional and talented development officer while working with two major Indiana universities and distinguished himself as a strategist with the ability to achieve results.
I look forward to having the opportunity to introduce Andy to you personally once he joins us officially on September 27th. In the meantime, please see the announcement below for more information on his background.
Higher Education Development Professional Joins JGA
INDIANAPOLIS (September 9, 2010) -- Johnson, Grossnickle and Associates, Inc. (JGA) is pleased to announce that Andy Canada will join the firm as a consultant on September 27, 2010.
Canada brings to JGA significant development experience focused in large public higher education institutions. For the past four years, Canada has served as Development Director for the Indiana University Foundation where he was lead Development Director for the School of Health Physical Education and Recreation (HPER).
Prior to joining the Indiana University Foundation, Canada distinguished himself within the development team at Purdue University, serving as Director of Development for the Krannert School of Management. Canada also worked in Purdue’s Planned Giving area, leading key initiatives to increase donor gifts through estate planning vehicles. By educating donors on planned giving opportunities, Canada helped to raise $26.5 million in new documented gifts for the university.
Canada will provide JGA clients with a new perspective and a solid background in annual fund, planned giving and major gift work.
“Several months ago, JGA began a quiet and thoughtful process to expand our team by identifying a fellow professional who could embody JGA’s commitment to delivering excellent client service with a focus on providing authentic and strategic counsel to our clients,” said Ted Grossnickle, Chairman and CEO of JGA. “Andy fills the bill in every way. He is a bright young talent who has already distinguished himself in the development field and we are very excited to welcome him to our team.”
