FORT COLLINS, Colo. -- Colorado State director of athletics Jack Graham announced Friday the appointment of David Crum as senior associate athletic director for development. Crum spent the past five years as a senior administrator at the University of Minnesota.
In his role with the Rams Crum will be the athletic department's chief development officer and be heavily involved in the campaign to raise funds for the construction of CSU's planned new on-campus football stadium.
At Minnesota Crum was the chief development officer who led a development unit that raised more than $100 million in five years. He played a lead role in securing more than $90 million for the Golden Gophers' on-campus TCF Bank Stadium, which opened in 2009.
Crum also oversaw the sale of all premium seating in TCF Bank Stadium, including more than 30 luxury suites that generate $1.3 million in new annual income, and led the Siebert Field Campaign to fund a $7 million renovation project for Minnesota's baseball stadium.
Prior to his tenure at Minnesota Crum spent 10 years at Iowa State, first in the area of ticket and event operations (1997-03) and later as assistant athletic director for major gifts (2004-07). In the latter position he played an integral role in the development unit that raised more than $28 million in three years. Crum also was involved in renewing and leasing 25 football stadium suites and a $90 million comprehensive athletics master facility plan.
Crum began his career in intercollegiate athletics working with ticket operations at UCLA (1991-94) before spending one year at Nebraska (1994-95) and two years at Louisiana-Monroe (1995-97).
Crum earned a master of arts in sports management from Ohio State in 1991, and has a bachelor of arts degree in communications from Concordia College in Moorhead, Minn. (1989).
David and his wife Linda have three elementary-age children.
