The Iona College Campus Quad

Kevin R. Callahan '84

Choosing to attend Iona College was definitely one of the very best decisions Kevin Callahan has made in his life. Kevin received a valuable education and became involved in college activities, residential life and Iona Basketball as an undergraduate. As a graduate he is active in the alumni association. Kevin has made lifelong friendships at Iona which he cherishes to this very day. Kevin had the privilege of returning to Iona as director of Alumni Relations from 1994-1996, during Brother Driscoll’s final year as president and Brother Liguori’s first year as president. He has remained active in helping to organize Iona’s alumni chapters in South Florida, Southern California and on Wall Street. Kevin and his wife, Anne, live with their two children, Aidan and Mairead, in Yardley, Pa., a suburb of Philadelphia.

Upon graduating from Iona, he began his career working in the finance industry in operations and sales management, on Wall Street, and in mortgage banking. Since then, he has served for more than 15 years in leadership roles in the not-for-profit sector, primarily in educational and social services settings, at Covenant House, Iona College, Notre Dame High School (N.J.) and currently as director of development at Theological College at The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. Kevin is a candidate for the Alumni Association Board because he believes his business background, not-for-profit experience and love for his alma mater would prove to be an asset to the Board.
