Jim Hamilton  


Jim Hamilton joined the American Red Cross in 2001 as the CEO of the Seattle/King County Chapter, coming from prior careers in healthcare and the fire service. In 2004, Jim became the Service Area Executive for the northwestern U.S., and, subsequently the Divisional Vice President for 12 states in the western U.S., plus Guam and the Northern Marianas.

Jim led the disaster relief efforts in Louisiana for Hurricane Katrina and worked with local and federal agencies to find long term housing for the victims. “This was one of the most challenging and simultaneously rewarding situations of my career (within and prior to joining the Red Cross). It was truly an honor serving with such a great group of staff and volunteers.”
