Notre Dame names new trustee

Business and finance veteran Anne Kennedy's first board meeting as trustee is April 8.

Notre Dame Preparatory School and Marist Academy announced today that on February 11, 2019, its Board of Trustees approved the nomination of Anne Kennedy as a school trustee. An orientation will be conducted for Kennedy and she will attend her first board meeting as a trustee on April 8, 2019. 
Kennedy has been an active member of the school community since 2015 when she and her husband, John, enrolled daughter Kathryn as a freshman in Notre Dame's upper division and Jessica as a sixth grader in the middle division. Anne also currently serves as treasurer of the Notre Dame Parents Club.
Stephen V. Pangori, current chair of NDPMA's Board of Trustees, is delighted with Kennedy's appointment to the board.
"Anne brings a wealth of business and finance experience to Notre Dame along with a strong background in nonprofit governance," Pangori said. "As we enter our 25th year of providing the most extraordinary Catholic education to thousands of students in southeast Michigan, Anne will further bolster an already exceptional roster of trustees who are charged with leading Notre Dame into an even more exciting and prosperous future."
Now retired, Kennedy served for many years at Birmingham, Mich.-based Munder Capital Management, a Victory Capital Management Inc. company, in positions of increasing responsibilities, including fixed-income portfolio manager and managing director of institutional marketing and client service, where she led Munder's institutional marketing activities and client-servicing professionals. Kennedy currently serves on the investment committee that reports to the Board of Directors of the American Cancer Society and from 2012-2017, served on the Michigan Catholic Conference Pension Board, which oversees all MCC pension plans. In addition, Kennedy volunteers at St. Joseph Mercy Oakland Hospital, located in Pontiac.
"I am looking forward to taking an even more active role in the NDPMA community," said Kennedy, who is a member of St. Hugo of the Hills parish in Bloomfield Hills. "Since coming to school at Notre Dame, our daughters have thrived and are developing into wonderful and responsible mission-centric young women with a bright future ahead of them. Now, as a school board member, I believe that my primary responsibility will be to ensure NDPMA remains a vibrant institution and the school of choice for families looking for the best Catholic educational opportunity for their own children."
Currently a resident of Bloomfield Hills, Kennedy earned a BBA degree from the University of Detroit Mercy and an MBA in finance from the University of Chicago.
