Derek McConnell Conference Services Manager

Born and raised in Nebraska, Derek is a proud alumnus of UNL with a Management degree and MBA.

Then, in 2007, he started a six year stint as a Conference Hall Director with the department. In the winter of 2017 Derek rejoined the team in his current position.
