“As a growing school we have a tremendous opportunity to engage with our active alumni community. Greg brings a wealth of experience to the Carey leadership team and will keep us on our path of growth and success,” said Bernie Ferrari, dean of the Carey Business School.

Bowden joined Johns Hopkins University in 2010. During his tenure with the Berman Institute of Bioethics, Bowden managed fundraising efforts and served as part of the management team for the Johns Hopkins: Rising to the Challenge Campaign. In six years, Bowden helped to raise almost $30 million, highlighted by a $4.5 million gift to endow the directorship of the Berman Institute.

Before coming to Johns Hopkins, Bowden served as director of development and director of the Greenwood Genetic Center and executive director of the South Carolina Birth Defects Foundation, which provided diagnostic services, clinical care, research, and graduate education around genetic disorders. Bowden also held fundraising leadership positions with Corporate DevelopMint, Custom Development Solutions, and the Catholic Diocese of Charleston.

Bowden graduated from Penn State University with a bachelor’s degree in organizational leadership. He also has a graduate certificate in nonprofit management from Johns Hopkins.

The Carey Business School was established in 2007 with a philanthropic gift from William Polk Carey. As the business school of Johns Hopkins University, Carey’s mission supports business knowledge development and education through its own initiatives, innovations, and collaborative programs. Carey creates and shares knowledge that shapes business practices while educating business leaders who will grow economies and societies, and are exemplary citizens.
