About the Speaker:
Gil Preuss is the newly appointed (August 31, 2017) Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer of The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington.
Gil comes to Federation from Boston, where he held the position of Executive Vice President at Combined Jewish Philanthropies (CJP) of Greater Boston for the last seven years. In this role, he oversaw strategic planning, financial resource development and community allocations. During his tenure, he led CJP’s two recent strategic planning processes. These plans helped reimagine the role of a Jewish Federation in the Boston area. Over his years at CJP, Preuss helped lead and launch several new initiatives, including a comprehensive day school initiative, community based Israel Advocacy and an integrated strategy to address poverty within the Jewish community. He partnered closely with donors to help develop and fund these initiatives, leading to community-wide change.
Prior to CJP, Preuss worked at The Jewish Community Federation of Cleveland, where he supervised agency allocations. Before moving to work at the Cleveland Federation, he was an Assistant Professor at the Weatherhead School of Management, Case Western Reserve University, where he taught courses on Organizational Behavior and Human Resource Practices in Non-Profits.
Gil received his B.S. from the University of Michigan, his M.S. from Cornell University and his Ph.D. from the Sloan School of Management, Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is married to Terri Brown Preuss, who is the National Director of the Hadassah-Brandeis Institute Conversations program, and with whom he has four children.
