Three additional co-chairs have been chosen for the final phase of the University’s fundraiser For All Kind: the Campaign for Carolina. The new co-chairs of the Campaign Steering Committee are Vicki Craver, C. Austin Stephens and Jennifer Halsey Evans.
Craver is a community leader in Riverside, Connecticut. She is a former bond trader and has served as vice president of Goldman Sachs’ fixed-income division. After graduating from Carolina in 1992, she earned her Master of Business Administration at Dartmouth College.
Stephens is a managing director of the Private Banking and Investment Group at Merrill Lynch in Atlanta, Georgia. He received his bachelor’s degree in history from Carolina in 1997. Besides his new position as a co-chair, Stephens is chairing the Next Generation Committee, a strategy group mostly composed of alumni in their thirties and forties.
Lastly, Evans is a strategic advisor and investor in high-growth medical technology companies. As an undergraduate at UNC, Evans was a Morehead Scholar and graduated in 1994 with degrees in political science and communications. She is currently a UNC professor doing a seminar on entrepreneurship in Silicon Valley.
“We are so fortunate to have these three accomplished alumni serve on our campaign leadership team,” Chancellor Carol Folt said in a statement. “Their commitment of time and energy attests to their abiding love for Carolina, and their vision and expertise will guide us moving forward in this campaign.”
