Chilton has served his alma mater as interim athletic director since February after the resignation of former director of athletics Danielle Lafferty.

A former student-athlete at Pfeiffer, Chilton has served as the director of the Falcon Club since 2020. He previously held the role of assistant director of admissions at Pfeiffer and has served as a regional director for eTeamSponsor, an athletics-focused fundraising and donor engagement platform.

Chilton has significant experience in fund raising and event management and is working to identify and implement strategies to enhance fund raising efforts to support the Falcon student-athletes and staff as well as to improve and update Pfeiffer’s athletic facilities.

“I am excited and honored to have been given this incredible opportunity to come alongside our coaches and athletic staff as we all work to continue to move Pfeiffer athletics forward,” said Chilton. “Throughout my time here at Pfeiffer as a student-athlete and staff member I have had the opportunity to watch the development of our athletics department under the care of my predecessors Bob Reasso and Danielle Lafferty, and my hope is that I can continue to build upon the accomplishments that they achieved.”

Chilton and his wife Lindsey, a 2014 Pfeiffer graduate, live in nearby Albemarle, and are the parents of a son, Cooper.
