Tyler Saltiel, who graduated from George Fox University, Newberg, Oregon, with a Bachelor in Business Administration says: I am delighted to join the Jacobs Talent Network and have the support of the Jacobs Foundation. I look forward to partnering with other fellows, researchers, and the full network to tackle the challenges facing children in West Africa who live in communities with limited resources. My career aim is to remove the barriers, such as lack of access to quality education, that prevent those in poverty from reaching their full potential and I am glad to be allied with the Jacobs Foundation in working to achieve this objective.
The 30-year-old fellow, born in the US, started his career at Deloitte providing audit services before becoming Controller at Partners In Health (PIH), a nonprofit organization bringing healthcare services to poor communities in West Africa and around the globe. In this role, Tyler led finance teams as well as oversaw finance and accounting processes at PIH’s headquarters and 12 country sites.
