Stockton University Foundation’s executive director is leaving his post to take a dual role at Rutgers University-Camden.
Philip Ellmore, 57, has been named vice chancellor for institutional advancement at Rutgers University-Camden and vice president for Camden advancement at the Rutgers University Foundation.
Ellmore, of Haddon Township, served as chief development officer and executive director of the Stockton University Foundation, overseeing major gifts, annual giving programs, special events, alumni affairs and staff recruitment, among other things. Support for scholarships and alumni participation tripled since he was appointed in 2010.
“We celebrate with mixed emotions as Dr. Phil Ellmore steps into his new role. During his seven years at Stockton he successfully completed the university’s first Comprehensive Campaign and exceeded its goal by more than 25 percent. The endowment increased by almost 250 percent from $10.9 million to nearly $39 million. We truly appreciate everything he’s given to Stockton and we fully expect he will continue to excel in his new position,” Stockton University President Harvey Kesselman said during Ellmore’s farewell reception recently.
Elmore has served as a board member and finance committee chair for the Boys & Girls Club of Atlantic City and has been active in the ShopRite LPGA Classic, which is held at the Stockton-Seaview Hotel and Golf Resort. He recently served as a member of the Board of Directors of CASE District II.
Dan Nugent will be joining Stockton as the interim chief development officer and executive director of the Stockton University Foundation effective Feb. 20, according to Stockton University Director of Media Relations Diane D’Amico. Nugent is currently the assistant vice president of advancement services and campaign manager, as well as interim assistant vice president of alumni relations at Seton Hall University.
