Non-profit fundraising specialist Shelagh Murray has been appointed as the next director of the University of Otago’s development and alumni relations office.

Ms Murray succeeds Philip Kearney, who held the Otago post for more than five years, until April this year, and is now  chief executive of Arthritis New Zealand.

As the  university’s 150th anniversary in 2019 approached,  Ms Murray was "keen to engage" with the university’s  alumni network in New Zealand and overseas, and to support  projects that would make a difference to students, research and the university as a whole. Since 2015 she has been a senior consultant at Australasian fundraising consultancy Askright, which works with non-profit organisations, including many schools and universities in Australia and New Zealand.

Ms Murray will take up the Otago job in February.
