Robert J. “Rob” Spiller has been named associate dean for development and alumni relations in the Whiting School of Engineering, effective January 10. For the past three years, he served as the founding director of the Regional and International Programs in the Office of Development and Alumni Relations. Under Spiller’s leadership, this office has become a successful and integral part of the overall development program at the Johns Hopkins University. Before joining Hopkins, Spiller spent seven years at Yale University as a major gift officer. He earned his bachelor’s degree at the University of Illinois, and his master’s degree in international relations at the University of Virginia.

Debra Lannon, director of development, served as interim associate dean after the departure last fall of Michael D. Moyer to pursue other professional opportunities. The Whiting School honored Moyer at a reception on October 26 for his successful decade at the helm of Engineering development.
