Jackson named OGH Foundation president

Posted on: 08/09/2017

Steven Jackson, currently regional executive director for YMCA of the Twin Tiers, has been appointed president of the Olean General Hospital Foundation, effective Oct. 13.

“Steve has a strong background in both operations and development as well as marketing and communications in the non-profit setting,” said Christopher Napoleon, OGH Foundation board chairman. “After an extensive search, we feel that his exceptional skills, strong background and local ties to the area fully prepare him to be successful in this position,” added Napoleon.

“I am very excited to have someone like Steve assume this position. He is an impressive and extraordinary person. His enthusiasm and strong interpersonal skills along with the way he sincerely cares about people and healthcare will no doubt help him to advance the mission of the foundation,” said Napoleon.

Jackson holds a master’s degree in sports management from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. He was named branch manager of the Bradford Family YMCA in 2011. With the recent merger of Bradford, Pa., Olean and Wellsville, NY, into the YMCA of the Twin Tiers, he was promoted to regional executive director in 2014. Jackson and his wife, Erin, reside in Bradford with their son, Carter, and daughter, Kendyl.

“The search for the position was initiated when Karen Fohl, current foundation president, who has held this position for more than 20 years, expressed her desire to step down from her position as president of the foundation,” said Timothy Finan, president and CEO of Upper Allegheny Health System, Bradford Regional Medical Center and Olean General Hospital. “Karen will assist with Steve’s onboarding after which she will continue to serve as vice president for institutional advancement assisting the hospital with the development of various projects and initiatives.”

“Certainly we are grateful for the leadership of Karen Fohl over these many years as president of the foundation and look forward to her continued service to OGH,” Finan said.
