Change is coming to Bacon Lee & Associates
Mike Bacon accepts vice presidency at Trinity University
Mike Bacon, co-founder of Bacon Lee & Associates, will be changing his role with the firm. He has accepted a position at Trinity University as the Vice President of Advancement and Alumni Affairs. Trinity is Mike’s alma mater, and he will be responsible for the University’s outreach efforts to alumni, parents and other donors. Mike will no longer be an active partner at Bacon Lee & Associates and will be devoting his full energy to supporting Trinity.
Marion Lee said that the firm’s passion and commitment to serving nonprofits in the area remains strong. “We are thrilled about this opportunity for Mike’s professional advancement. With the strong foundation he and I began at Bacon Lee & Associates, and that continues to this day, the associates and I remain committed to strengthening area nonprofits and helping our clients raise essential funds to benefit causes throughout our area.”
“I’m very proud of the work we’ve done helping our clients raise funds for a variety of causes from providing food and shelter for needy families, to building schools and libraries, to supplying haven for animals, to creating new arts and cultural centers, to providing scholarships for worthy students, and helping to cure diseases,” she said.
Mike said, “I am so grateful for all that we’ve achieved at Bacon Lee & Associates and I would not have been tempted to leave, except for this extraordinary opportunity to serve a school that I love so well. I’m honored and humbled to be selected to work with Trinity’s new president, Dr. Danny Anderson, and I leave the firm knowing that our clients are in very good hands.”
Marion said that the firm would retain the name, Bacon Lee & Associates, for the present time. “Our associates, Joyce Penland and Amy Phipps in San Antonio, and Karen Kegg and Priscilla Cortez in Austin, along with office manager, Rhonda Serna, have helped us build a company with a mission of helping nonprofit organizations achieve their goals. These amazing associates will remain an important part of the company’s future. “
Bacon Lee & Associates recently marked its 15-year anniversary and the surpassing of a milestone: helping nonprofits raise more than $200 million for causes in San Antonio, Austin, Corpus Christi, the Texas Hill Country and beyond.
