The Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation has named Penny Mills Voss of Norman as its vice president of development.

Voss comes to OMRF from the Dean McGee Eye Institute, where she had served as vice president of development since 2002. At Dean McGee, she planned and coordinated a $30 million capital campaign that culminated in November with the groundbreaking for a new research and clinical facility.

"Penny Voss has a track record of fund-raising success that few in this state can match," said OMRF President Stephen Prescott, M.D. "As OMRF embarks on a major campus expansion, her skills and experience will be key to generating the philanthropic support this project will require."

Voss has more than 20 years of fund-raising experience in Oklahoma City and Norman. Prior to her tenure at Dean McGee, she was director of donor services for the Oklahoma City Community Foundation, executive director of the St. Anthony Hospital Foundation, director of development for the Oklahoma City Philharmonic, director of corporate and foundation relations for the University of Oklahoma, and director of development for the Oklahoma Arts Institute.

Voss holds a bachelor's degree in business administration from the University of Central Oklahoma and is former president of the Association of Fund Raising Professionals. She was awarded the Association's Mike McDonald Outstanding Professional Fund Raiser Award for 2006.

"The addition of Penny Voss enhances an already strong management team at OMRF," said Len Cason, chairman of OMRF's board of directors. "Her talents and experience will be major assets to the organization."

Voss and her husband, Russell, live in Norman with their two sons, Austin and Garrett. Voss serves on the boards of directors of the Norman Public Schools Foundation and the Norman Community Foundation.
