The Direct Marketing Educational Foundation, the nonprofit educational affiliate of the Direct Marketing Association, said yesterday that David Chancey will become executive director of the DMEF effective Jan. 19.
He replaces Tom Stoneback, who served as DMEF president until Dec. 31.
Chancey, former Felician College campus administrator and executive vice president, will oversee all aspects of the DMEF including fundraising, program development and the continued expansion of direct and interactive marketing education throughout colleges and universities.
“The education of the next generation of direct and interactive marketers is one of this industry's most important goals,” DMA president/CEO H. Robert Wientzen said. “David's extensive academic and fundraising background will be instrumental in helping the DMEF shape tomorrow's industry leaders and develop new programs to meet the rapidly evolving industry.”
Chancey brings to the DMEF more than 23 years of fundraising experience, including more than 13 years at Felician College. Earlier in his career he held fundraising positions at The John B. Cummings Co. Inc., The Charles Valentine Riley Memorial Trust and The United Way of Hudson County (NJ).
