Boise State University Director of Athletics Mark Coyle announced the hiring of David Kinard as an Associate Athletic Director for Development, Monday. He joined the Bronco staff July 23, 2012.
Kinard will supervise and coordinate the activities of the Bronco Athletic Association staff, and work with its members and Board of Directors in order to accomplish the desired goals and objectives of the athletic department. Bob Madden will continue to serve as an Associate Athletic Director focusing on major gifts.
Kinard will oversee the raising of financial support through a number of channels, including annual membership, special events, sports enhancements and capital projects.
"David has proven he can successfully develop relationships and raise funds that will have a direct impact on our 450 student-athletes and department. He is a rising star in this field and we are excited about the addition of David to our staff. He brings with him great experience, from strong programs, and will be a good fit for Boise State," said Mark Coyle.
Kinard joins the Broncos from Arizona State University, where he most recently served as the Director of the Sun Devil Club Annual Fund.
Through identifying, cultivating and soliciting members of the Sun Devil Club, he helped the athletics department reach more than 12,000 members that donated more than $8.6 million in annual fund revenue. He supervised the annual fund development staff, and was the liaison to the ticket service staff to help craft donor communication strategies.
With his help, Sun Devil Athletics is in the process of completing a $32.4 million capital campaign, including practice facilities for football and men's and women's basketball, as well as a new sports performance center.
He also oversaw the budget and operations of the Student Sun Devil Club, increasing membership from 417 to 4,000.
Prior to his time with the Sun Devils, Kinard worked as the Manager of Sponsorship Sales and Operations for IMG College-Big Blue Sports Marketing at the University of Kentucky. He was the head liaison between Big Blue Sports Marketing and the Kentucky athletic staff, and developed and managed a comprehensive inventory fulfillment program that included all multimedia rights and media and corporate partners.
Kinard personally managed nearly $1 million in corporate sponsorships, in addition to new client revenue and media partners.
Prior to IMG, Kinard began his collegiate career in sports medicine at UCLA, working with the NCAA Champion women's gymnastics team.
Originally from Tulare, Calif., he graduated from UCLA with a bachelor's degree in physiological science in 2003, and went on to earn his master's in sport management from Kentucky in 2006. He is currently working on a doctorate in business administration with an emphasis in organizational leadership from the University of Phoenix, and is expected to complete the program in August 2013.
