Since joining the UAM staff, Whiting has been instrumental in rebranding the UAM Sports Association, the private fundraising arm of UAM Athletics. As a result, UAM has benefited from a 130 percent increase in annual donors and a more than 400 percent increase in annual donations.

He has also been successful at enhancing the UAM Athletics Partnership program, adding 14 new corporate-level partners during the 2013-14 sports season. He has also helped UAM raise over $400,000 for the Swing for the Fences campaign to specifically provide resources to renovate UAM’s baseball and softball facilities.

“Matt has been a tireless worker since he joined UAM Athletics three years ago,” said Ratcliff. “It is appropriate and time to move him up to Associate Athletic Director. Matt has a great vision for small college athletics, and has helped UAM reach goals it has never come close to reaching before. He is a great asset to the University and UAM fans nationwide.”

Whiting was a two-year letterman in baseball at UAM in 2009 and 2010. He graduated from UAM in 2010 with a degree in business administration and later earned an MBA from UALR in 2010. For a look at Whiting’s full bio, click here: http://uamsports.com/staff.aspx?staff=54.
