Ern is a proud supporter of the Idaho Nonprofit Center, we're excited to have him join us as a new board member in 2022.
Ern moved back to Boise four years ago; he first lived in the great state of Idaho in the early 90s after marrying a Boise native. His interest in the nonprofit sector was sparked when his mom started the first mental health and human services nonprofit in his hometown of 3,000 people in Central California 35 years ago.
Ern co-founded and is a board member of the national nonprofit Compass, which harnesses the skills of volunteer professionals to provide consulting support to other nonprofits, and was a consultant and project leader for Bridgespan. Ern has served on several boards, and currently serves on the board of St. Luke’s Health Partners here in Boise.
Most of Ern’s business career has been in the healthcare sector. He is currently CEO of Onsite Dental, the pioneer and market leader in workplace dental care, with operations in 13 states and based in Orange County, California. Ern started his career at the strategy consulting firm Bain & Company. He has a BS from UC Berkeley and an MBA from Harvard.
