Bob Weston brings to CCS 30 years of independent school experience and expertise as an educator, administrator, and fundraiser.  Over the span of his career, Bob has held several senior administrative positions, and worked extensively on hiring and recruiting faculty, collaborating on institutional strategic planning, and directing annual, major gifts, and capital campaign fundraising programs.

In his most recent role as Associate Head for External Affairs at St. George’s School, Bob directed the communications, alumni relations, and development offices, while also serving as the school’s chief fundraiser.  He spearheaded the school’s From These Walls capital campaign, which raised over $32 million for programs, facilities, and endowment.  He also directed the fundraising efforts to raise $3.5 million for the construction of two turf fields, and he helped to grow the annual fund during the school’s capital campaign.
