Davis Babb was named the Chief Executive Officer of IPTAY in 2013. Babb previously served TCU as associate athletic director for external affairs and interim athletics director –positions that involved projects to increase corporate revenue and ticket sales, serving as liaison to the alumni association, and supervising media relations, marketing and promotions.
Prior to coming to TCU he was athletics director at the Virginia Military Institute and previously coached the Furman University women’s tennis team for two years.
“I am excited about Davis Babb bringing his fund raising experience to IPTAY,” said Dan Radakovich, director of athletics. “A strong partnership between IPTAY and Clemson athletics is vital for our long-term success. I look forward to working with Davis in any way possible to achieve all of our goals for Clemson.”
After going through corporate restructuring this year that strengthened IPTAY’s ability to raise funds for Clemson athletics, the university and IPTAY conducted a national search that led to Babb’s selection as IPTAY’s first CEO.
Begun in 1934 to give the Clemson athletic program the support it needed, IPTAY is now one of the most successful athletic fundraising organizations. IPTAY donors provide millions of dollars in scholarships for student-athletes and non-athletes alike. It also has provided substantial support for programs and facilities that help Clemson Athletics stay competitive in collegiate sports.
