Meet Our Team
CEO and Executive Director Bill Ihle
Bill Ihle joined us in July 2017 and has lived in the Rogue Valley since 1997. Bill brings a broad and deep understanding of the community, its needs, its people, and how our organization can lead in the vital areas of financial literacy and financial health. Bill comes with a deep commitment to improving the financial health of the area, with the knowledge that financial health is directly tied to many social determinants of health. After all, if you don’t have your financial health, how can you have a safe home for your family, or afford a car? Without that foundation in place, how can you get a job or keep your family fed?
Previously, Bill worked in the non-profit world, and earlier he led several very high profile global companies, serving as Executive Vice President of Communications, Marketing and Community Engagement for Harry & David Holdings and Yamanouchi Consumer, Inc. from Tokyo. [more…]
