Regional Development Program Director
Mike Brown is a Regional Director within the Athletics Advancement team. In this capacity, he is responsible for the University’s fundraising efforts for Athletics.
A Milwaukee, Wis. native, Brown graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 2001 with a degree in Management Information Systems. While at Notre Dame, he was involved in numerous extracurricular activities, but none that garnered more attention than when he was named the first ever African-American mascot/Leprechaun.
Brown also has a master’s degree in management from Cardinal Stritch University and joins the Athletics Advancement offices after spending 19 years with Fidelity Information Services (FIS), a Fortune 500 company. He began at FIS as an intern for five summers, then moved on to a web developer role for six years and finally took a leap of faith to enter the world of sales. He ended his eight-year sales career at FIS having put together a successful track record of consistently being a top sales performer and driving leading results.
Since his departure from campus, Brown has served the University as a Director on the Monogram Club Board from 2010-13 and as a Young Alumni Director on the Alumni Association Board from 2005-08. He loves all Notre Dame Athletics, especially the cheerleading squads.
Michael and his wife, Jaymie (’02, MSA ’03) reside in the South Bend area.
