Darren joined SVP in May of 2018 as Vice President of Operations & Finance to take over the day-to-day administration of the organization. He came to us with a strong background in business management, financial analysis, process development, and information technology. Darren has worked in a variety of industries, from financing to construction, and thus brought a valuable perspective to our nonprofit realm.
As part of the leadership transition in 2019, he was promoted to Deputy Director where he continues to oversee development strategy, supervise financial planning, and provide the robust backend support needed for the organization to execute its mission.
Darren grew up in the Wonder Years suburbs of Southern California before he and his family moved north to the Gold Country of the Sierra Foothills. After “retiring” from the fire service, Darren relocated to the Portland area, and his family soon followed.
When he’s not crunching numbers or creating flow charts, Darren enjoys outdoors activities with his wife and two children, working in their yard, and volunteering in his local community.
