BALTIMORE - Longtime Loyola University Maryland administrator Marty Kelly '85 announced this week that he is leaving the institution after 25 years of service to focus on running his family's business.
Kelly, who has been a member of the Loyola community since entering the school as a freshman in 1981, has been an Assistant Director of Athletics for External Affairs since December 1999.
"We wish Marty all of the best in this new frontier for him," Director of Athletics Joe Boylan said. "Marty's passion for all aspects of Loyola - academics, community service and athletics - has been great."
Following graduation in 1985, Kelly began working in the Loyola admissions office as a counselor. Following several years of service, Kelly became the Dean of Undergraduate Admissions before moving to his current role in athletics.
In athletics, Kelly was responsible for the marketing and promotion of the Greyhounds. He was the Executive Director of the Loyola College Athletics Club and was responsible for fund-raising and corporate sponsorships.
"I am grateful for Marty's help and direction over the last five years," Loyola Men's Lacrosse Head Coach Charley Toomey said. "We have had conference affiliation changes, the development of the Stickmen's Club and many other areas of growth, and I am thankful for his support."
Kelly graduated from Loyola in 1985 a member of Phi Alpha Theta with a bachelor of arts degree in political science. He later graduated from Loyola's Executive M.B.A. Fellows Program.
Kelly moderated Loyola's Own Committee On Spirit and served as both the Co-Chairman of the Anniversary Gift Committee for the Class of 1985 and as a consultant back to the Undergraduate Admissions Office.
In his departure from Loyola, Kelly is taking an executive leadership position with Kelly's Stationery, Inc., in Westminster, Md. His family's business, which opened in 1962, is a full-service commercial office products company that serves Carroll, Frederick and Northern Baltimore Counties.
