NEW YORK – Donna MacPhee, a 1989 alumna of Columbia College, former women’s tennis student-athlete, former Varsity C Club president and one of the founders of the Columbia Athletics Women’s Leadership Council, has been named vice president for alumni relations and president of the Columbia Alumni Association, University President Lee C. Bollinger announced today.

A member of the Varsity tennis team as an undergraduate, MacPhee has remained involved in Columbia Athletics over the years as an alumna, serving on numerous committees and co-founding the Women’s Leadership Council. This year MacPhee was chosen as one of Columbia’s 25 most influential athletic alumnae.

After earning her Bachelor’s degree from Columbia College as one of the College’s first female graduates, MacPhee went on to earn an MBA from NYU’s Stern School of Business and then dedicated her career to companies related to professional athletics, including managing finances for various departments of the National Hockey League.

For the past 10 years she served as co-founder and manager of Event Management Associates, a company that provided event and meeting planning services to a broad range of both not-for-profit and corporate clients.

MacPhee joins the Columbia Alumni Association at a promising time. Now in its fourth year, the Association continues to develop as an organization representing alumni from all of Columbia’s schools worldwide. The University also is poised to welcome alumni to a brand new Columbia Alumni Center opening in early 2009.

MacPhee lives in Ridgewood, N.J., and is married to men’s basketball alumnus John MacPhee ‘89CC. They have two daughters, Larissa, 12, and Alexa, 10.
