Current Job: Managing Director for the Integrated Capacity Solutions business line for Enclude (Formerly ShoreBank International)

“I cannot imagine my life evolving as it did without Warren Wilson College and the Triad. I now understand ‘success’ in the context of community success and not just personal achievement.”
After graduating Warren Wilson, Jesse was accepted into the Peace Corps and served in Galati, in eastern Romania then in Timisoara, in the west. Through this experience Jesse was able to grasp a gritty understanding of the nature of change, human politics, and the things that make people around the world more alike than different.”

Currently, Jesse is the Managing Director for the Integrated Capacity Solutions business line of Enclude “No two days are the same. While I am in the international consulting business, my Warren Wilson experience always keeps me grounded in the well-being of my neighbor and the value of humility and hard work.” Before his current position, Jesse was Vice President for ShoreBank International and responsible for their global microfinance practice. He traveled regularly, primarily to Afghanistan, Pakistan, Palestine, the broader Middle East, and Papua New Guinea.
