Graduate Alumni Relations: New GAR director

Fall 2012

In August, Tim Ponisciak (MBA ’07, MARK/MATH ’03) became the new director of Graduate Alumni Relations at the Mendoza College. He brings significant marketing experience to the position, having worked previously in advertising, marketing and brand management. Ponisciak also formerly worked for the Notre Dame Office of Development from 2009-12, focusing on young alumni fundraising.

“As alums know, an important part of the Notre Dame experience is that you become part of the ND family for life,” he says. “One of my first priorities is to identify ways my department can strengthen the bond between Mendoza graduate alumni and the University through events, online activities and student interaction. I welcome input from Mendoza alums about how we can increase interaction.”

Ponisciak lives in Granger, Ind., with his wife, Erin, who is an academic adviser for First Year of Studies at Notre Dame. To contact him, email, or reach out through the LinkedIn group for the Mendoza College of Business Graduate Alumni Relations.
