Former Stanford Fundraiser Now Leads Haas Development
Larry J. Lollar joined the Haas School this fall as the new assistant dean for development and alumni relations. Lollar comes to Haas after a nationwide search to fill this position, conducted by the school with the assistance of the professional search firm Heidrick and Struggles.
Lollar brings more than 20 years of fundraising experience to his new role, including sixteen years at Stanford University and four years at the University of Texas at Austin, where he was vice president for development under UC Chancellor Robert Berdahl, who was UT's president at that time.
While he was at Stanford as the director of Foundation and Corporate Giving, Lollar raised $480 million in foundation and corporate giving as part of Stanford's $1.1 billion campaign.
"I hope to build on the successes of the Haas program," says Lollar. "There is a wonderful staff here and although we have some vacancies to fill, I want to get going with meeting the fundraising goals of the school."
