Correction: An earlier version of this story included the incorrect title for Derek Denton in the story and the headline.

After a national search, the University of North Carolina Wilmington announced Derek Denton as its new development director for athletics.
Denton will begin serving as executive director of the UNCW Student Aid Association, the Seahawk Club, on Aug. 22. He will be responsible for managing all Seahawk Club fundraising activities, overseeing daily operations and directing donor recognition and stewardship programs, according to a news release.

He will work with Jimmy Bass, director of athletics, and Eddie Stuart, vice chancellor of the Division for University Advancement, to enhance the educational mission of UNCW Athletics, the release stated.
Before joining UNCW, Denton served as the assistant director of development for the Louisiana State University Tiger Athletic Foundation. He also has served as assistant director of the East Carolina University Educational Foundation, where he managed 16 Pirate Club chapters and the ECU Student Pirate Club.
“Derek’s expertise in athletics fundraising focuses on several key areas for UNCW, such as building alumni chapters and student clubs while also generating significant private support for scholarship endowments and capital projects,” said UNCW Chancellor Jose Sartarelli in a news release. “Under Derek’s leadership, we’re eager to create new connections with Seahawk fans and friends of the university to capitalize on our program’s momentum.”
Denton graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a degree in journalism and received his master’s degree in sport management from ECU.
