BELLINGHAM, Wash. - Restructuring of the Western Washington University Athletic Department's senior management team began with Steve Brummel being named Associate Athletics Director for Facilities and Operations and Dr. T.H. "Butch" Kamena given the title of Assistant Athletics Director for Compliance and Academics. Making that announcement Tuesday was new WWU Director of Athletics Steve Card.
Brummel is completing his 21st year as Director of Athletics Marketing. He played an instrumental role in a number of initiatives including branding and licensing efforts and adding digital signage and Viking Vision to Carver Gymnasium in 2012.
The 45-year-old Brummel has been in charge of corporate sponsorships, regional television broadcasts, trademarks and licensing, advertising and promotions, game management and fund-raising golf tournaments.
His new role will include direct supervision of nine of WWU's 15 varsity athletics programs along with event operations and primary liaison for facility development including the new multi-purpose field that will be completed this summer and the impending renovation of Carver Gymnasium.
Brummel, who is completing his 13th year as adjunct instructor in WWU's College of Business and Economics, earned his bachelor's degree in business administration from WWU in 1993 and master's degree in 1999.
Kamena is completing his 12th year as compliance officer and academic advisor for athletics. He is in his 18th year as an adjunct instructor in WWU's department of political science and has assisted in sports information for 26 years.
The 46-year-old Kamena earned his doctorate in political science from the University of Calgary in 2001, master's degree in political science from WWU in 1993 and bachelor's degree in political science and journalism from WWU in 1989.
Both Brummel and Kamena are graduates of Sehome High School.
Card was named WWU's sixth athletics director in late March after serving in an interim role the previous 10 months. Prior to that, he was the Vikings' associate director of athletics for business and financial affairs for 23 years.
