Andrea Angel, former director of development for the Athletics Department at UALR, is the new director of development for the UALR College of Business.
“I am delighted Andrea will be joining the leadership team in the college,” said Jane Wayland, Stephen Harrow Smith Dean of Business.
“She has a proven record in development and event fundraising. And, as a college alumna, she will be able to tell the UALR story to our donors and friends from her own experiences.”
Angel graduated magna cum laude from the College of Business in 2003 with a bachelor’s degree in marketing. She was named the 2003 marketing student of the year and was also a member of the Beta Gamma Sigma business honor society.
She was also a three-year captain of the UALR golf team and received a Sun Belt Conference academic award in 2002.
In her former position, she worked toward the long-term financial support of the university’s athletic programs. Angel oversaw all major gifts as well as the annual fund for the Trojan Athletic Foundation (TAF), and worked closely with the TAF’s board of directors.
She was also responsible for oversight of the annual SpectacUALR event, raising an average of $190,000 per year to support UALR’s student-athletes.
Before coming to UALR, Angel previously worked as the outside sales representative for Southern Coating and Nameplate Inc. and as a manager with Vector Marketing Corporation.
Angel and her family reside in Little Rock.
