The University of Missouri announced Monday that Tim Stedman had been hired as an associate athletic director and will be in charge of the department’s fundraising as head of the Tiger Scholarship Fund.
Stedman, 49, had served as Michigan State’s associate athletic director for development since 2005.
“We are very pleased to recruit someone of Tim’s experience and proven achievement to join us at Mizzou,” deputy athletic director Doug Gillin said in a news release. “He’s a proven fundraiser who will be an outstanding leader and resource for a young, energetic and talented staff that we have at Mizzou.”
Stedman helped raise approximately $48 million toward capital campaign initiatives, endowments and planned gifts for the Spartan Fund during his tenure in East Lansing. He also helped secure the largest cash gift for Olympic sports ($4 million) and the largest deferred gift ($6.5 million) in Michigan State history.
“I am genuinely honored and privileged to be joining the University of Missouri family,” Stedman said in MU’s release.
Before his time with the Spartans, Stedman served four years as an assistant athletic director at Northern Illinois and spent three years at the University of Denver.
He started out at Northern Illinois as the regional director of athletic fundraising from 1992-94 before serving as Troy State’s director of athletic development from 1994-96.
