At UC Santa Barbara, Fee managed a staff of five responsible for the fundraising efforts for all endowments, capital projects, annual giving and planned gifts, with his personal focus directed towards major gifts. In his last year at UCSB, Fee helped raise $4.7 million. His role as deputy athletic director also meant a large role with strategic planning for the athletics department.
"Andy brings a wealth of experience and energy to Long Beach State," said President Jane Close Conoley. "His vision for the future of our athletics program provides me confidence that he will build on the many successes we have had over the years and he will take our student-athletes to the next level, athletically and academically."
"I am looking forward to building on the already successful foundation at Long Beach State and engaging the entire campus and community, to work together to fulfill the bold vision for Long Beach State Athletics," said Fee. "I was impressed and inspired at every turn during the search process with those who shared their love and commitment to Long Beach State."
Prior to his move to UC Santa Barbara, Fee served as the Associate Athletics Director for Facilities and Operations at the University of San Diego. Fee oversaw all athletic operations including event management, master planning, scheduling, maintenance, and purchasing for the department's athletics venues.
At both UC Santa Barbara and USD, Fee was tasked with sports supervision, providing general oversight of budgets, scheduling and fundraising for his assigned programs, which most recently included Men's Soccer at UCSB.
Before his move to San Diego, Fee worked at Arizona State University in operations while he completed his B.A. from ASU and an M.A. in Education from the University of Phoenix. A native of Laguna Niguel, Calif., Andy and his wife, Nicole, reside in Long Beach along with their dog Sparky.
