Brian Campbell Named Executive Director Of U.Va. Medical Alumni Association

July 27 , 2000 -- The University of Virginia Medical Alumni Association named Brian E. Campbell as its executive director, effective July 1.

Campbell has worked at the association since June 1996, most recently as associate director for alumni affairs.

Prewitt Semmes, who is retiring as executive director of the Medical Alumni Association, will continue to serve as director of its Medical School Foundation.

"It is my pleasure to have worked with Brian Campbell during the past four years," Semmes said. "I am continually impressed with Brian’s intelligence and management skills and am confident in his ability to meet the day-to-day challenges of running this important organization."

A native of Gloucester, Va., Campbell served in the U.S. Air Force from 1980 through 1986. In 1994, he was appointed by then-Gov. George Allen to the State Board of Social Services and the Virginia Advisory Council on Adult Education and Literacy. He continues to serve in both capacities. He holds a degree in business administration from Averett College and is pursuing a master’s degree in educational policy from U.Va.’s Curry School of Education.

"Brian Campbell has served the Medical Alumni Association with distinction in his capacity as associate director," said School of Medicine Dean Robert M. Carey. "He provides an organized, enthusiastic and vigorous approach to medical alumni affairs and is a staunch advocate for the University of Virginia School of Medicine. We welcome him to the position of executive director with anticipation that the Medical Alumni Association will continue its highly successful partnership with the School of Medicine in support of medical education, research and clinical service."
