Gov. Inslee Names Financial Services Executive Jeff Hensler to CWU Board of Trustees
Washington Governor Jay Inslee has appointed Jeff Hensler, Senior Investment Strategist and Partner with the Bellevue-based financial services firm, Sound Consulting Services (SCS), to the Central Washington University Board of Trustees.
Hensler graduated from CWU in 1998 with a double major in Economics and Geography, and was a 2015 CWU Distinguished Alumni Award recipient. He is a former chair of the CWU Foundation and sits on the Seattle Humane Society Finance and Audit Committee.
“My goals are to grow Washington’s economy, strengthen our schools, and promote a culture of performance and efficiency in state government,” Inslee said in his appointment letter. “You can help me achieve goals.
“Serving the people of our state is a real privilege, and I hope you find this to be a rewarding experience. Thank you for your willingness to join me in serving the people of Washington.”
Hensler said he was honored to be able to serve his alma mater as a trustee.
“Central played a key role in my career so it has been important for me to give something back to the university,” Hensler said. “Without CWU and its gifted faculty, I would not be where I am today.”
Hensler has been in the financial services industry for more than 20 years and is a founding partner at SCS. He has been recognized in the top 5 percent of LPL Financial’s 16,000 advisors for multiple years and is a member of the LPL Chairman’s Club.
Hensler’s term will run until September 30, 2024.
