In January, Bozeman Health’s president and CEO, John Hill, announced
that Jason Smith is moving into a new, expanded role as Bozeman Health’s
chief advancement officer. In addition to continuing to lead the independent
Bozeman Health Foundation, Jason will also oversee Bozeman Health’s
communications and marketing, community outreach and health improvement,
and partnership development programs. Together, these forward-facing functions
play a vital role in engaging with those we serve and defining how our
growing region understands who we are.
For those who may not know, prior to returning to the U.S. to serve as
MSU Alumni Foundation’s vice president for external affairs, Jason
led corporate communications and humanitarian diplomacy programs for the
International Red Cross in Geneva, Switzerland, and across their Asia
Pacific region. In taking up this challenging new role at Bozeman Health,
Jason has shared that he feels both eager to serve and anxious about his
ability to live up to these growing expectations.
