The St. John’s Medical Center (SJMC) Board of Trustees has appointed
Scott Gibson as Trustee to fill a vacancy created by a resignation. Gibson's
term will run from December 6, 2011 through the next General Election
in November 2012.
"Scott Gibson has extensive experience as an entrepreneur and business
executive and served for nearly 10 years as a member of the governing
board of the Oregon Health and Science University. He also has been serving
as a community member of the SJMC Finance and Strategy Steering committees,”
said SJMC Board President Michael Tennican. "The Trustees are in
agreement that Scott Gibson will be a tremendous asset on the Board."
Tennican added that “the choice among the candidates for the vacant
Board position was difficult. The Board was impressed by the experience
and capabilities of all the candidates who indicated an interest in serving.
We hope we can enlist their talents in other roles supporting St. John’s
services to the community.”
Gibson partnered with 19 other Intel employees to co-found Sequent Computer
Systems, Inc. in 1983. Sequent grew from start up to a company with 2,500
employees and went public in 1987. Gibson served starting as VP Finance
and Operations, then Chief Operating Officer, then President and COO,
and finally President and Co-CEO. Sequent was sold to IBM in 1998. Gibson
currently is chairman of the board for Radisys Corporation and is a board
member for TriQuint Semiconductor, NW Natural, and Pixelworks.
Gibson also has many years of experience as a volunteer. In addition to
his service as a member of the governing board of Oregon Health and Science
University, he served ten years on the Oregon Community Foundation, six
years on the Board of the Olin College of Engineering and has worked with
a number of other educational and public-private organizations. Gibson
is currently a member of the Grants Committee of the Community Foundation
of Jackson Hole.
"St. John's Medical Center is a hugely important community resource
and, given that I have a background in working with hospitals, I now hope
to have a positive impact on this vital community resource as a Trustee,"
