Carmel, Ind. — Hailey Mangrum will join the Phired Up Productions team in a part-time role beginning in February as a Culturally-Based Fraternal Growth Consultant. Hailey joins Phired Up while simultaneously serving as the Assistant Director of Fraternity and Sorority Life at Virginia Tech. She will be joining the Phired Up team at AFLV Central in early February as part of a panel to share her expertise on growing culturally-based fraternal organizations.
“Hailey is the perfect person for this role,” said Matt Mattson, Phired Up’s co-founder and President. “She is driven, she is innovative, she fills every interaction with joy while simultaneously challenging the status quo with ease. She has experience advising a wide range of sororities and fraternities, and she has a deep commitment to helping culturally-based fraternal organizations grow and thrive.”
Mattson continued, “We have important work to do. Culturally-based fraternities and sororities are demanding improved resources and services, and rightly so. I am personally committed to making sure our company becomes great at serving all of our industry. Hailey shares that passion and I’ve had so much fun talking with her about ways we can improve, and about the resources and services we can create. She’s brilliant and I’m thrilled to have her on our team.”
Hailey is a graduate of Western Michigan University where she earned her bachelor’s degree in communication and joined Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. She went on to earn a master’s degree in Student Affairs Administration in Higher Education from Ball State University before working full-time with the fraternity and sorority community at her alma mater, Western Michigan University.
As an active professional within the fraternity and sorority field, Hailey has volunteered for the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors, several national fraternity and sorority leadership programs, and has developed exceptional facilitation and presentation skills through her role as a lead facilitator for NIC programs like IMPACT.
“I am tremendously excited to do this important work with Hailey,” said Jason Allen, Director of Education. “She will be leading this initiative as we create more ways to serve culturally-based fraternities and sororities through growth education. Hailey’s experiences, positivity, and ability to make moves is exactly what our industry needs right now; this doesn’t even take into account her lively wit and hype personality that we can’t wait for everyone to see.”
When Hailey isn’t working or traveling, she enjoys being in community with others, reflecting on This Is Us, and vibing to a good Drake playlist.
“I am inspired by the model in which Phired Up leads, defines teamwork, and impacts the industry,” said Hailey. “I’m honored for the opportunity to contribute to the team by ensuring culturally-based fraternity and sorority students from all over the country have a comprehensive learning experience related to recruitment.”
Phired Up has long been proud of its work that has directly served culturally-based fraternities and sororities. The addition of this position to the team, however, represents one of several ways the company is committed to serving culturally-based groups better. One of Mangrum’s first jobs will be to organize a volunteer committee of other professionals who care about helping culturally-based fraternal organizations grow.
