Northwest Health Foundation is thrilled to announce that we have found a new Vice President of Finance: Jason Hilton.
Jason comes to us from Capital Pacific Bank where he currently serves as Senior Vice President, providing leadership and strategic support to their mission-related investment efforts.
Northwest Health Foundation will use all of the tools in our toolbox, including mission-related investing, to advance health for Oregon and Southwest Washington. Jason's experience in this field, along with his skills in asset management and finance, means that we've landed the perfect person for this job.
A native Oregonian, Jason grew up in Jacksonville and attended South Medford High School. He left the state for college, obtaining his bachelor's degree in business and finance, with a minor in economics, from the University of Montana. After college, Jason returned to Oregon to work for US Bancorp Securities, then US Bank, as a corporate credit analyst. In 1999, he joined a locally-owned financial services company where he rose to the position of Chief Operating Officer and eventually helped facilitate its sale to a publicly traded company. He joined Capital Pacific Bank in 2008 as a Portfolio Manager and Client Relations Officer, rising to his current position of Senior Vice President, overseeing a team that addresses troubled companies and bank-owned real estate. Outside of his career, Jason also co-founded a local nonprofit that focuses on aiding orphanages that rescue children from the slave trade.
Jason will start at NWHF on July 1st, succeeding NWHF's founding Vice President of Finance David Hooff who joined the Foundation in 1999 and is retiring after a 45-year career in financial management. Dave has been an irreplaceable part of NWHF's team and its legacy. He will be greatly missed!
