Kevin Fenstermacher has been named Deputy Athletic Director for Communications and Administration at Westminster College, effective Nov. 28.
In his new role at Westminster, Fenstermacher will oversee the communication and media relations efforts for Titan athletics and serve a key role on the director of athletics’ administrative leadership team.
“I am excited for Kevin to join the Titan family. His vast experience in Division III athletics makes him a great addition to our administrative team,” said Westminster College Director of Athletics Jason Lener ’93. “His demonstrated skills working in athletic communications and general administration will be an asset for Westminster athletics. I am looking forward to him joining our team and leading the charge of promoting our 22 varsity teams.”
Fenstermacher, who brings more than 20 years of experience to the position, comes to Westminster after 10 years as assistant commissioner and director of communications for the Presidents’ Athletic Conference (PAC), which is comprised of 11 NCAA Division III colleges and universities, including Westminster College. At the PAC, Fenstermacher oversaw the league’s strategic communication and media relations efforts. He also served as adviser to the PAC Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and supervised the PAC undergraduate internship program.
Prior to his work with the PAC, Fenstermacher served as associate director of athletics at Thiel College, where he began his career as sports information director. Before his 11-year stint at Thiel, he was assistant sports information director at State University of New York at Oneonta.
“I look forward to beginning a new professional chapter at Westminster College,” said Fenstermacher. “Having spent over 10 years with the PAC, the time just felt right to get back to a campus community—and I couldn't look past the opportunity of working with such a diverse, forward-thinking campus with such a high-energy culture and institutional pride like Westminster. I have spent a lot of time around Westminster student-athletes, and it has always been a group that’s demonstrated an ongoing commitment to service and obligation to improving relationships throughout the community, so interacting with a group like that is something I am very excited about.”
Fenstermacher earned his bachelor’s degree in physical education/sports communication from Bethany College and his master’s in leadership from Duquesne University. He is active with the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA), Eastern College Athletic Conference Sports Information Directors Association (ECAC-SIDA) and Division III Commissioners Association (DIIICA).
