Wheaton Director of Athletics and Recreation John Sutyak ’00 began serving a two-year term as the New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) president on July 1, 2015, after completing two years as president-elect.
“It is an honor to rotate into the role of NEWMAC president. Over the past two years as president-elect, I have had the privilege to learn the ropes from [former president] Wellesley Director of Athletics Bridget Belgiovine, who is one of the finest athletic administrators in the business,” said Sutyak. “I look forward to providing the same consistent leadership that she—and her predecessors—have provided over the last number of years.”
In addition to carrying out his duties at Wheaton, Sutyak is helping transition the NEWMAC into sponsoring football in 2017, and guiding the conference through several other initiatives geared toward promoting the organization’s strategic plan and core values throughout the next two years.
