WAKEFIELD, Mass. – May 26, 2015 – Virtual, Inc., a leading technology-focused association management company, announced that the company’s President, Andy Freed, was elected to lead the Harvard Varsity Club, a community of 22,000 current and former Harvard athletes, for a term of three years. Mr. Freed is a graduate of Harvard College, where he was a four-year letter winner on the school’s varsity water polo team and later the team’s head coach. He also holds a Master’s degree in Public Policy from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government.

The Harvard Varsity Club offers members access to exclusive events, information, and ticket availability, and it provides a range of services for student-athletes, alumni, and teams and coaches under one roof. The Varsity Club’s virtual community also serves to share information and broaden professional connections.

As president, Mr. Freed employs his leadership and executive skills to set strategic direction for the Club and develop outreach initiatives for the members. His efforts to date have focused on establishing regional boards in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco, improving career services programs for Harvard athletes, and enhancing the online offerings.

“As an athlete and coach, I appreciated the support and services offered by the Varsity Club. It’s an exceptional organization with over 125 years of history of supporting the largest Division I collegiate sports program in the country,” said Mr. Freed. “I’m pleased to bring my knowledge of membership organizations to bear to help this valuable organization.”

At Virtual, Mr. Freed is at the helm of a staff of 90-plus professionals in the U.S., Canada and Europe, who deliver services from finance and accounting to marketing and certification program management.
