Kristi Bohlender begins her 17th year in the CSU athletic department. Promoted by Director of Athletics Paul Kowalczyk to assistant athletic director in June 2010, she is in charge of fundraising for the athletic department, including major gifts and annual support.
A Fort Collins native, Bohlender supervises the development office, including the Ram Club, special events and donor relations, as well as premium seating at Hughes Stadium, Invesco Field and Moby Arena.
Bohlender began working full-time in the athletic department in May 1995 and has served in the development office ever since. Initially hired by then-AD Corey Johnson as an intern funded through the NCAA's Women in Athletic Administration initiative, she got her start in athletic development as a CSU student in 1992. She also volunteered as an undergraduate for the media relations office, working in the press box, while simultaneously working for the office of student affairs.
One of the most genuine people on campus, Bohlender has never worked anywhere else professionally. She graduated from CSU's School of Business in 1993 with a finance degree, then earned her MBA with concentrations in management and marketing in 1995. During graduate school, she headed the campus' student orientation efforts, hiring and supervising the staff.
A Fort Collins High School graduate, she lettered in basketball and served as student body president.
Kristi and her husband, Troy, and their three children, Bailey, Brooke and Blake, make their home in Fort Collins. Kristi's father, Don, is the former superintendent of the Poudre School District. In her spare time, she volunteers at Dunn Elementary and serves on the public relations committee of the Poudre Valley Hospital Foundation.
