2017 WLB Panelists

Jen Cohen – Director of Athletics, University of Washington

Cohen was named the University of Washington’s fifteenth Director of Athletics on May 24, 2016.

Cohen has been with the UW for 18 years and for much of that time has overseen the athletic department’s fundraising efforts. Cohen and her team led the “Drive for Husky Stadium” campaign, in which the department raised over $50 million in gifts for the renovation of Husky Stadium, which was completed in August 2013. Cohen has also led development efforts for a number of other initiatives, including the renovation of Hec Edmundson Pavilion and the Conibear Shellhouse, the construction of the Dempsey Indoor Practice Facility, the Husky Legends Center, Husky Golf Center and various scholarship endowments.

Shaney Fink – Director of Athletics, Seattle University

Fink comes to Seattle U from the University of San Diego, a private Catholic university, where she most recently served as Senior Associate Athletics Director and Senior Woman Administrator. Her full tenure at USD spanned more than 17 years and included previous roles in compliance and student services, academic support and as an assistant volleyball coach for the Toreros.

At USD, Fink was responsible for day-to-day operations and management of 17 NCAA Division I teams and 450 student-athletes. She was a key point person for many leadership, strategic planning, inclusion and fundraising initiatives during her USD tenure.

She held oversight responsibility for a development team and assisted in development and management of a $20+ million Athletics Department budget.
