The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, one of the largest private foundations in the United States, has named Jonathan D. Hook as its first chief investment officer. Hook will work closely with the foundation’s Board of Trustees and with Rachel Garbow Monroe, the Weinberg Foundation’s president/CEO, to refine the foundation’s investment strategy.
Hook, 56, comes to the Weinberg Foundation from The Ohio State University, where he served as vice president and chief investment officer.
Hook will also build an internal investment team to assist him. After a twenty-year career in commercial banking, he transitioned to a career in institutional investment management when he was hired to build Baylor University’s investment office in 2001. He subsequently helped to found the Ohio State University Investment Office in 2008.
