Monmouth AD Marilyn McNeil Discusses Off-Campus Leadership Roles

In conjunction with our partners at D1.ticker, Turnkey Search is pleased to present “1.Question”, an audio feature in D1.ticker’s daily email newsletter. “1.Question” features brief interviews with high level collegiate athletic administrators.

In Part II of Monmouth Athletic Director Marilyn McNeil’s 1.Q, the Hawks boss dives in to the question of whether or not athletic directors can be too involved with leadership roles that take them off campus. McNeil reflects on a number of high-profile opportunities she has taken on (NCAA, NACWAA, FCS) with the ancillary benefit of raising the profile of the university, and how she knew when it was time to pull back and spend more time back on campus. McNeil also compares and contrasts FCS leadership with the ‘Power 5’ approach.
