Patrick Arnold '84 Named Director of Development

Posted: August 27, 2018

Following an extensive search for the ideal candidate, Bellarmine College Preparatory has named Patrick Arnold as its new Director of Development.

Arnold, a Bellarmine alumnus from the Class of 1984, will officially begin his Development responsibilities effective January 2, 2019. Arnold is currently CEO of Filice Insurance Agency in Moraga and he has worked for the company for the past 19 years. His sales experience includes being regional sales director at Oracle in the 1990s.

A graduate of U.C. Berkeley, Arnold is no stranger to Bellarmine, having been a respected football player as a student. He went on to be a three-year Letterman with CAL football, and a four-year Letterman for CAL rugby, the national champions in 1986 and 1988. He currently serves as vice chair of Bellarmine’s Board of Regents. His father, Walt Arnold, was a respected Bellarmine football coach from 1974-1983.

“The opportunity to return to Bellarmine and serve is the culmination of a lifelong ambition,” said Arnold. “I look forward to acknowledging Bellarmine’s past and helping build its future.”

In his notification to faculty and staff about the hiring, Bellarmine President Chris Meyercord noted, “Pat is one of the most passionate alumni I have ever met, and he is deeply committed to our mission as a Catholic, Jesuit school. I know that we will be very well served by his work starting in 2019.”

Arnold will work closely with Brian Adams, Vice President for Advancement, and report directly to the President.
