STAC Welcomes James Errico, Alumni Relations and Community Management for Institutional Advancement

St. Thomas Aquinas College is pleased to welcome STAC’s Bachelor of Science graduate, James Errico ‘06, to lead Alumni Relations and Community Management Initiatives for the Office of Institutional Advancement. “James joins us from St. Francis College where he has shown his ability to drive Alumni engagement, build great relationships and work in digital content initiatives,” commented Jacques Tortoroli, Vice President of Institutional Advancement. Dr. Tortoroli further added, “while he has the experiences we need, he also brings an energy and passion to take us to new levels of accomplishments and innovation. Moreover, James and his wife are both STAC alumni and bring with them existing alumni relationships. Please join me in welcoming James back to STAC!”

James not only graduated from St. Thomas Aquinas College in 2006 with a Bachelor of Science degree, but he also served as a Resident Assistant (RA) for two years during his time at STAC. Upon graduating, James accepted a position at SUNY Oneonta as a Residence Hall Director (RHD) where he used his previous experience as an RA and succeeded in this position for seven years.

In the spring of 2013, James transitioned to College Advancement and joined the Office of Alumni Engagement at SUNY Oneonta. He grew their Campus to Career program from one club in business and accounting to five clubs that included the fresh additions of history, the music industry, political science, and communications. He also increased the number of alumni visits from five to fifty.

In 2015 James embarked on a new career venture at Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine as the Assistant Director of Institutional Advancement and Alumni Relations. Here, James was a part of a team that rebuilt the Alumni Association and the overall alumni engagement strategies for the school and their Alumni Board.

In 2019, James transitioned to St. Francis College where he continued to help schools build their alumni programs and enhance engagement.

James and his wife, fellow STAC alumni Erica Needham-Errico '08, are very excited to be coming back home to St. Thomas Aquinas College.
