Bronx, NY (December 9, 2016) – Mount St. Michael Academy has appointed Thomas A. McCarthy to serve as Vice President of Institutional Advancement. McCarthy comes to The Mount from Manhattan College where he held the position of Director of Alumni Relations, a role he assumed in 2011. Prior to his appointment, McCarthy served as Assistant Director for Annual Giving, and focused on sustaining and recruiting donors and prospects, while connecting and cultivating alumni at a variety of events.

As Director of Alumni Relations at Manhattan College, McCarthy played a crucial role in leading alumni relations into a new era, including enhancing alumni communication, maintaining and building relationships with young and senior alumni, planning and organizing a variety of events, and much more. His alumni and development experience were instrumental factors in guiding Manhattan College’s alumni office and broader alumni community into meeting the strategic goals of the institution.

After graduating from Manhattan College with a Bachelor of Science in secondary education and a concentration in mathematics in 2006, he initially worked as a teacher at a Catholic high school in Westchester County before returning to his alma mater. McCarthy’s attraction to Catholic education continues; he begins his role at The Mount on December 12, 2016.

McCarthy, originally a native of Riverdale, N.Y., is a resident of Yorktown Heights, N.Y. He is the son of Thomas McCarthy, Sr., MSM Class of 1964. He completed a master’s in general counseling in 2010, and is currently working toward a Ph.D. in Catholic and non-public school leadership at Fordham University.

“We are excited to welcome Tom in his new role at The Mount,” said Peter Corritori, Jr. ’71, President & CEO of Mount St. Michael Academy. “We know that he is the right man to forge a vigorous synergy between our past and our future.”

Alumni Society colleagues,

After serious thought and consideration, I’ve recently accepted the position of vice president for advancement at Mount St. Michael Academy in the Bronx and will be leaving Manhattan College. 

Given the time of year, and the immediate needs of Mount St. Michael, I’ve already started to transition into my new role and will officially begin this Monday, Dec. 12. This position is an excellent opportunity for me with responsibilities in development, alumni relations and communications for the school, which has been a staple in the Bronx for 90 years and currently serves grades 6-12 – it also happens to be the high school my father graduated from some 50+ years ago. After serving the College for a decade (almost to the day) it’s very hard to leave but I know this is a terrific move for me personally and professionally.

The College, and our vice president, Tom Mauriello, have been extremely supportive of this opportunity and I’m fortunate to have my Manhattan colleagues continue to remain available to me as mentors and resources. I will be seeing through some obligations to the Alumni office at Manhattan over the next few weeks to help ease the transition. Of course, should you have any questions or need help, our manager of alumni relations, Kelly Douglas, will be on hand to hold down the fort until the College is able to fill the current vacancies.

I’ve often said that I’m the “luckiest guy on campus” being able to work as an alum at my alma mater, and meet so many great Jaspers throughout the country. It’s been a pleasure and privilege to work with you in making Manhattan’s alumni presence stronger and I’m proud of all the activities we’ve put forward. We’ve accomplished so much and created some lasting memories that I know will stay with me for a long time.

Thank you for all you’ve done to support the College, our office, and me over the last ten years. I really appreciate it and hope to see you again soon. My new email address is {Privacy Invoked. To prevent spam, I don’t put email addresses on the web. Ping me for it.}.

All my best. Go Jaspers!
