Ripon College will welcome its newest member of senior leadership, Wayne Webster, to campus April 12 as the vice president for advancement. Webster was most recently the director of major gifts and interim director of planned giving at Gettysburg College in Gettysburg, Pa.

Webster has nearly a decade of professional development experience in higher education. During his tenure at Gettysburg College, Wayne played a key role in raising the resources necessary for a $27 million center for athletics, recreation and fitness that opened in the fall of 2009.

Prior to his arrival at Gettysburg, Webster was a major gift officer at Doane College in Crete, Neb. during a $45 million campaign that exceeded its goal.
