VP, Development and Alumni


Tom Brannan
Tom Brannan became Vice President for Development and Alumni in January 2016. Brannan and his team are ultimately responsible for making connections: helping donors connect their passions with the mission of UAB, and helping UAB’s more than 118,000 graduates stay connected with their alma mater. These functions are crucial to the ongoing success of the $1 billion Campaign for UAB, the university’s most ambitious fund-raising campaign to date.

Brannan joined UAB in 2007 as a development director in the Department of Neurology. He was named executive director of development and strategic planning for the UAB School of Medicine in 2010, UAB associate vice president for development in 2011, and interim vice president for development and alumni in October 2015. Prior to UAB, Brannan served in development positions at Middle Tennessee State University and Auburn University. He is a graduate of Auburn University.
