Andrew Ginsberg Appointed Vice President

News Release
For Immediate Release


(Madison) — InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA has named Andrew Ginsberg as Vice President, Director of Advancement.  Andrew will officially begin his new responsibilities on July 1, 2011.



InterVarsity’s Advancement Department is responsible for communications and financial development.  For the past eight months Andrew has served as Associate Director of Advancement. His previous roles have been at the executive level in healthcare, including Vice President of Marketing and Managing Director of clinical research for LabCorp; and a number of leadership and strategy roles for multiple sectors of SmithKline Beecham (now GlaxoSmithKline) in the U.S. and abroad.



“Andrew’s 18 years of experience as an executive in sales, marketing, and strategy in the healthcare industry have prepared him well for his new position,” said Alec Hill, President of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship.  “We already see the fruits of his skills and passions translating into InterVarsity’s purpose and mission.”



Andrew came to faith in Jesus Christ through InterVarsity’s ministry at Duke University, although it wasn’t until five years after he was out of college. His long walk to faith demonstrates the power of prayer; he became a follower of Jesus Christ as a result of the prayers of his friends who were InterVarsity students and their churches, who continued to pray for him long after they had all graduated.



Today he is an elder at Chapel Hill Bible Church in North Carolina, and he recently chaired a Pastor Search Team.   His experience as Church Treasurer and College-age Sunday School Teacher also prepared him for working in his new position with InterVarsity.  He has served on a number of non profit boards.



Andrew graduated from Duke University with a B. A. in Political Science and a Genetics Certificate. He and his wife Marnie live in Durham, NC. They will be moving with their three daughters to Madison, WI, the home of InterVarsity’s national office.



InterVarsity’s current Vice President and Director of Advancement, Barney Ford, will continue in his position until the end of June, 2011.  After a sabbatical break, Barney will return to InterVarsity in a role yet to be determined.
