July 18, 2012
CLEVELAND, Ohio — The members of the Collegiate Event and Facility Management Association (CEFMA) have selected Tim Wise, Miami Hurricanes’ Senior Associate Athletics Director for Facilities & Event Operations, among its executive board for 2012-13.
Wise joins Dawn Stewart (Director of Athletics, Otterbein University) and Brendan Fouracre (Senior Associate Athletics Director for Facilities & Operations, University of Cincinatti) as one of three CEFMA Vice Presidents serving under President Lisa Sweany (Director of Athletics, Armstrong Atlantic State University).
“CEFMA has continued to grow and prosper since our inaugural Convention in 2009, including a record number of attendees at our 2012 Convention under the leadership of Andrea Williams (Big Ten),” stated Sweany. “Without the support of our members and sponsors, we would not be where we are today.”
Wise, who has over 16 years of experience in college athletics as an event manager, facilities director and administrator, was hired by the University of Wisconsin Athletic Department as assistant athletic director for events and facilities in August 2008. In January 2012, he was named Interim Associate Athletic Director and elevated to the Senior Management Team with oversight of the University Ridge Golf Course and $125 million in capital projects.
