Earl T. Granger, III Named Development Officer for Colonial Williamsburg Foundation

The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation has appointed Earl T. Granger III, current Associate Vice President for Development at William & Mary, to serve as its Chief Development Officer and Vice President of Development.

A 1992 William & Mary graduate, Granger has strong ties to the local area having served in many roles over his nearly 15 year career at the university, including four years as associate provost for enrollment before transitioning to his current role in 2010. Granger was integral in the development, launch and recent completion of the university’s successful “For the Bold” campaign that secured more than $1 billion in private support for the university.

“We are extremely fortunate to have Earl join us at Colonial Williamsburg to advance our mission, as he is a dynamic and engaging leader committed to our mission,” said Colonial Williamsburg President and CEO Cliff Fleet. “His long and impressive record of successful fundraising, passion for education and commitment to organizational diversity will help us to ensure the bright future we see ahead for the foundation.”

WittKieffer’s Dennis Barden and Melissa Fincher led this search.
