Catherine “Rinnie” Nardone was named in December the Law School’s Associate Dean for External Relations, responsible for development, alumni relations, and communications. A familiar face to alumni, she is a 10-year veteran of the Law School and worked through the last capital campaign, becoming development director in 1997. Before her latest promotion, she was assistant dean, helping to raise more than $12 million in cash in the door for each of the last two fiscal years. Her appointment comes in the wake of former Associate Dean Martin Shell’s promotion to University Associate Vice President for Development. “Rinnie brings intelligence, energy, professionalism, and an amazing depth of knowledge of the School and its alumni,” said Dean Kathleen M. Sullivan. “I feel exceedingly lucky to have her serving in this capacity.”
