Parrish Named Vice President for Institutional Advancement at Welch

GALLATIN, TN—Todd Parrish assumes a new role as Vice President for Institutional Advancement on July 1 after the retirement of David Williford, according to President Matt Pinson.

Parrish came to Welch in January 2018 as Director of Church Relations and Major Gifts Officer before transitioning to the role of Associate Vice President for Institutional Advancement in May 2021. In his new role, he will engage in the overall administration of fundraising and external relations at Welch, working with Tim Owen, Director of the Welch Fund. Williford will continue in a part-time fundraising role.

“Todd Parrish is tailor-made for this position,” Pinson said. “No one loves Welch more than Todd. He combines a deep knowledge of our alumni base and denomination with a singular penchant for ‘friend raising’ and has distinguished himself as an excellent fundraiser in his five years at Welch. He’s known for his hard work and can-do attitude. I’m so glad to have him in this new role.”
