Farewell to Vice President Bruce Flessner

January 13, 2022

Dear AUC Community,

Please join me in thanking our colleague Mr. Bruce W. Flessner, Vice President for Advancement and Americas for his contributions during his tenure at AUC.

Mr. Flessner was appointed in summer 2019 to advance the University’s fundraising capacity, expand AUC’s alumni engagement globally, enhance student recruitment in North America, and grow partnerships with U.S.-based institutions. Leading AUC’s North America operation, Mr. Flessner worked closely with AUC’s trustees, president, faculty and administration, to re-establish AUC’s New York office, create synergy across various functions in North America, and provide guidance to AUC’s US-based team in diverse roles. He contributed to completing the centennial campaign goal and achieving the annual fundraising target.

Before joining AUC, Mr. Flessner consulted for many higher education institutions worldwide on board relations, development, alumni affairs, communications, strategic planning, and advancement services. A leading entrepreneur, published author, and public speaker on philanthropy and institutional advancement, he has guided some of the largest fundraising campaigns in the US.

We are very appreciative of Mr. Bruce Flessner’s contributions to AUC, and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors.
