Eben Jose, Chair

Investment Director, Spinnaker Trust

Experience: I am proud to serve as a member of the LearningWorks board because I believe everybody deserves an opportunity to get an education that will help him/her live a happy and fulfilling life. LearningWorks programs do just that as they offer those who have not found success in traditional educational environments an alternative way to succeed. It is critical for our community to embrace, celebrate and expand these programs so that everybody who seeks to better themselves through education is provided the tools do such.
Education: Eben is responsible for managing all aspects of Spinnaker’s public and private alternative investments as well as formulating the firm’s fixed income investment strategy. In addition, Eben evaluates new and existing equity investments for Spinnaker’s two stock portfolios. Prior to joining Spinnaker, Eben worked in Boston as an analyst at Santander Bank where he helped oversee the bank's commercial lending portfolio. Eben is a member of the Investment Committee and the Marketing Committee at Spinnaker. A native of Boothbay, Maine, Eben lives in Freeport with his wife and son. He is a member of the Maine CFA Society and serves as a board member at the Friends School of Portland.
