Staten Island, NY | The College of Staten Island is saying farewell to a staffer this weekend, as Assistant Sports Information Director Thomas Krychkowski has resigned from his position, accepting the Director for Athletic Communications position at Rutgers-Newark located in Newark, New Jersey.
Krychkowski, a 2013 graduate of New Jersey City University, came to CSI in December of 2014 as CSI’s Assistant Sports Information Director after serving as a senior student assistant at his alma mater for five years. In his time at CSI, he oversaw the gameday operations staff for the College’s 18 intercollegiate sports, including the development of promotional programs through publications, media relations, photo and video. Krychkowski also served to revitalize the Athletic program’s social media outreach campaign and facility branding efforts through intense graphic design development. He also lent his efforts to various committees and activities, including the annual CSI Golf Outing, Annual Awards Banquet, and Hall of Fame.
“My time at CSI has been outstanding. Since joining the staff in 2014, I have grown and learned an immense amount,” Krychkowski said. “The administration at CSI created an enjoyable, family atmosphere to work in which made going to work every day a joy. The values that have been instilled in me will never be forgotten and I will look to instill those same values over at Rutgers-Newark.”
Krychkowski, who enjoyed an accomplished soccer career at NJCU as a student-athlete, has also lent his statistical expertise to numerous other campuses during his time at CSI, among them NCAA Division I Wagner College, NJCU, and Major League Baseball.
“Tom has given us an immeasurable amount of support and has raised the profile of our department in the time that he has been here. Albeit a loss for us, I am very proud to see him advance in the profession in this way,” said David Pizzuto, Associate Director of Athletics and Sports Information Director at CSI. “Having him on our team the past few years has really been an asset for us, and I am excited about the colleague I have now gained at Rutgers-Newark.”
Krychkowski will begin duties at Rutgers-Newark on March 11. There, he will handle all facets of Sports Information and Athletic Communications for the Scarlet Raiders’ 14 NCAA Division III programs.
“I have worked in the sports information field for 10 years now and to finally have earned a head position is a culmination of the great experiences I’ve had in the profession,” Krychkowski stated. “I head to Rutgers-Newark with a lot of excitement and optimism and I can’t wait to put my mark on a new athletic department.”
