Noah LeFevre Appointed Senior Associate Director of Athletics
"I am very pleased to be joining such a talented group of coaches and staff members," LeFevre said. "The rich tradition and history of athletics at Manhattan College combined with the institution's dedication to moving the program forward makes the College an ideal place to be. I am excited to be part of the program."
While at Brockport, LeFevre oversaw the day-to-day operations of a Division III athletic program that consisted of 23 sports and over 625 student-athletes. Under his leadership, Brockport launched a new athletic website, embarked upon an athletic department rebranding initiative, expanded the department's academic support staff, and renovated three separate facilities with private funding. In addition, he revamped the Golden Eagle Society, the fundraising arm of the Brockport athletic department, resulting in increased giving and alumni relations.
He was also responsible for Brockport's 12 athletic facilities, including Eunice Kennedy Shriver Stadium, one of the largest on-campus sporting venues in Division III. LeFevre played a pivotal role in renaming that facility, which was previously known as Special Olympics Stadium, in September 2010, as well as the Jim & John Vlogianitis Gymnasium after a substantial gift by the two former Brockport basketball standouts that was used to renovate the school's main gym.
"We are extremely fortunate to add Noah to Manhattan College," Byrnes said. "He has unique experiences that will help the College immediately and for years to come. He is particularly strong in facilities management, athletic renovations, fundraising and capital planning-all areas noted in the College's strategic plan. Noah is a great fit for Manhattan."
Prior to his time at Brockport, LeFevre was an Associate Athletic Director at New York University, where he was responsible for athletic department marketing, facilities, revenue generation and capital planning. LeFevre was also the project manager for the internal design construction of NYU's Palladium Athletic Facility. Upon its opening, he managed the 80,000-square foot complex in lower Manhattan, catering to 2,300 patrons daily while supervising a staff of more than 200. During his tenure at NYU, eight different athletic teams finished in the top four nationally, including a 2007 National Championship in cross country.
LeFevre also previously worked with the National Invitation Tournament (NIT) and Hockey East Conference. He holds an M.B.A. from NYU's Leonard N. Stern School of Business, as well as an M.S. in sports management from NYU's Robert Preston Tisch Center for Sports Management and a B.S. from NYU's College of Arts and Sciences. LeFevre also holds a certificate from the Sports Management Academy (SMI), the premier athletic administrative development academy in the country.
