Cedarville, Ohio—Bill Bigham has been named vice president of advancement at Cedarville University. He began his new role on July 1.

For the past 11 years, Bigham served at Roberts Wesleyan College/Northeastern Seminary in Rochester, New York. As part of his various leadership roles and responsibilities, Bigham managed fundraising campaigns totaling nearly $44 million.
