Omaha Catholic School Consortium names new executive director
September 27, 2023
Shannan Brommer has been named the executive director of the Omaha Catholic School Consortium effective Nov. 1, the organization’s board of directors announced.
Brommer has been the Director of Stewardship and Advancement for the Archdiocese of Omaha since 2011, leading countless initiatives to enhance Catholic education across northeast Nebraska.
“Shannan is a proven leader with a deep understanding of our six schools and the students we have the privilege to serve,” said Tammy Blossom, Chair of the Omaha Catholic School Consortium Board of Directors. “The expertise she brings coupled with her passion for Catholic education make her the perfect fit to lead the Consortium as we work to reach new heights in the next decade.”
Brommer has served on the Consortium Board of Directors since 2016.
“I am deeply honored to have the privilege to lead the Consortium, whose students and mission are dear to my heart,” Brommer said. “I look forward to the opportunity to work with the Consortium’s talented educators, principals, staff, Board of Directors and supporters to secure an even brighter future for our innovative schools.”
Current executive director, Mike Goetz, will be the Consortium’s Director of Finance and Operations after he expressed a desire to move into a part-time capacity. Blossom thanked Goetz for his leadership and continued service to the Consortium.
Before the archdiocese, Brommer served as Director of Advancement at Marian High School. Brommer and her husband are parishioners at Our Lady of Lourdes parish in Omaha.
The Omaha Catholic School Consortium was established in 2012 and is a collaboration of parishes, schools, parents and community partners working together to support Catholic education in southeast Omaha. It serves nearly 1,700 students across six schools: the Dual Language Academy, Holy Cross, Our Lady of Lourdes, St. Bernadette, Sts Peter and Paul and St. Thomas More.
“The Consortium schools have a strong tradition of exceptional education and formation of students in the Catholic faith,” Archbishop of Omaha George J. Lucas said. “I remain confident this tradition will continue to bless families in southeast Omaha for generations to come.”
The Archdiocese of Omaha’s Stewardship and Development Office will be led by interim director, Bree Kotulak, who leads the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal and has served in the office for more than seven years.
The archdiocese will hire a permanent director to lead the office after an evaluation of its strategies and trends in development across U.S. dioceses.
