Personnel News: February 23
We are pleased to announce that Matt Sahlin (pronounced Suh-leen) will join Burgundy as Director of Advancement. He will begin work July 1.
Matt has served since 2012 as Director of Development at Alexandria Country Day School and previously worked in development at his alma mater Trinity College (CT). At ACDS, Matt was a senior administrative team member. He is familiar both with independent schools generally—he is a graduate of Choate—and the small K-8 school environment. Matt led a successful major campaign at ACDS and helped strengthen both their Annual Fund and culture of philanthropy. Prior to his move into development, Matt was a history and drama teacher, yearbook advisor, and coach at ACDS (he continued coaching as Director of Development).
We thank the staff, trustees, administrators, teachers, and parents who took part in our interviews for this position. We look forward to welcoming Matt to Burgundy!
