Director of Development (COE)

Tamera Ziglar is Director of Development for the College of Engineering (COE) at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University (N.C. A&T) in Greensboro, NC. She brings to the University over 25 years of Sales, Human Resources Development, and Fundraising expertise.  Tamera attended Spelman College in Atlanta, GA, where she earned an undergraduate degree in Biology. After working in Research at Mead Compuchem in the Research Triangle Park she moved to Greensboro, where she enrolled in North Carolina A&T and earned a Master’s degree in Human Development.

Following a stint as a Job Placement Counselor in the Guilford County Schools she moved into Training & Development with Ciba-Geigy, then AT&T; and from there went on to start her own consulting company, Timberlake & Associates. She developed and successfully marketed workshops in Team Building, Workforce Diversity and Career Management & Transition. Her clients included AT&T, American Express, Guilford County Schools, Sara Lee Hosiery, and (the former) Reynolds Tobacco, to name a few.

Marketing her portfolio to prospective clients allowed Tamera to successfully transition into Sales and Relationship Management. She spent nearly a decade in Pharmaceutical Sales with Eli Lilly before completing a five year stint at United Way as a Senior Relationship Manager and Fundraiser.

As Director of Development for the College of Engineering Tamera will continue to leverage and expand the College’s portfolio of engaged stakeholders, for the benefit of students, faculty and staff. She is excited to rejoin the Aggie family, and looks forward to a long and productive association with the University.
