HAA’s New Helmsman

Philip W. Lovejoy

Philip W. Lovejoy has been appointed executive director of the Harvard Alumni Association (HAA), succeeding John P. ( Jack) Reardon Jr. ’60, effective July 1. The executive director leads the HAA’s approximately 40-person staff in managing club and shared-interest-group operations, education and travel programs, international outreach, class reports, reunions, digital communications (the alumni.harvard.edu website and the HarvardX for Alumni online-education experiences), and more. The transition for the staff should be seamless: Lovejoy joined the HAA in 2004, following prior positions in the travel industry and at the then-Harvard Museum of Natural History. He has most recently served as deputy executive director.

In the announcement of his appointment, Lovejoy said, “Harvard is a singular place filled with brilliant and engaging alumni who are making a huge impact in the world. The HAA empowers our alumni to connect with one another and build the foundation of a lifelong relationship with the University.” Reardon, who relinquishes his management role but maintains his other Harvard responsibilities, said, “Philip has done a spectacular job as deputy executive director. He brings great personal strengths to this role.” See http://harvardmagazine.com/ 2014/05/philip-lovejoy-named-harvard-alumni-director for more details.
