DRiWaterstone Human Capital Places Johnathan Board as Executive Director at the West Virginia First Foundation

ARLINGTON, VA (March 15, 2024) – DRiWaterstone Human Capital has successfully placed Jonathan Board as the inaugural Executive Director at the West Virginia First Foundation. In this role, Board will play a pivotal role in establishing the Foundation, developing its operational structure, overseeing its programs and initiatives, and spearheading partnership efforts.

Jonathan Board is a seasoned executive with a background in external and governmental affairs, programmatic management, and substance use disorder (SUD) policy. With expertise in financial oversight, fundraising, legislative acumen, and leadership, he has successfully navigated large-scale projects, secured substantial funding through various channels, and implemented impactful SUD mitigation and recovery initiatives in Appalachia. He has a law degree and experience with healthcare systems, rural health challenges, and strategic development which further contribute to his ability to translate complex policy matters into actionable strategies. Jonathan will be joining the West Virginia First Foundation from Mon Health System where he was Vice President, External Affairs.

The West Virginia First Foundation strives to combat the drug addiction crisis in West Virginia. With the support of expected funding between $600-$700 million in settlements, and an opportunity to raise much more through the private sector, its primary goal is to attack the drug problem holistically, through education, prevention, treatment, and enhanced enforcement to help individuals, families and communities affected by this devastating drug epidemic.

This search was led by DRiWaterstone’s Managing Director, Julio Suárez, with the support of the DRiWaterstone team.
