Richard Button


Phone: 610.783.6500
Department: Trainers


Richard is a certified trainer of the Leadership Training for Managers.  He has over 35 years of management experience in the high visibility areas of admissions and development in higher education. He served in various admissions capacities at three colleges in three states with his last assignment as dean of enrollment at a liberal arts college in Allentown. He moved over to development, serving at a regional state university for over 20 years.

In both admissions and development, Dick started as "doer' and moved into management positions, learning to lead people and manage processes.

He has extensive experience in innovation: he initiated corporate, planned giving, major gifts, and employee giving programs. The stewardship, donor recognition and cultivation programs he conceived and supervised reduced costs, increased participation, and resulted in dramatic growth of endowed funds, scholarships, and membership in all giving club levels.

The nature of his profession enabled him to recruit, train, and motivate senior corporate and community leaders for volunteer positions and was responsible for board development.

Dick is a leader in his profession: serves the board of his regional professional organization and is a presenter at local, regional, and national professional meetings. He is a leader in his community: he serves on his local municipal planning commission, is president of his school district foundation, and is active in local economic development.  

Dick earned his Bachelor's of Political Science from the University of Mount Union and his M.Ed. from Kent State University.
