Can We Avoid a Crisis?

Friday, March 27, 2015


Ted Wheeler, Oregon State Treasurer, will present comment and context for the recently released report issued by the Oregon Retirement Savings Task Force, which he chaired. The task force was created by the 2013 Oregon Legislature. To view a copy of the report prior to the program, please go to the following website:
 Ted Wheeler was first appointed to the office of Oregon State Treasurer in 2010 and then elected in 2012.  Before entering elected office, he worked in the financial services industry. His career included posts at financial institutions including Bank of America and Copper Mountain Trust, where he was a senior manager.
He earned his undergraduate degree in Economics from Stanford University, an MBA from Columbia University, and a Masters in Public Policy from the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.
Wheeler was born in Portland, and graduated from Lincoln High School. His family has deep Oregon roots. The town of Wheeler, located on Nehalem Bay on the Oregon coast, is named after his great-grandfather.
Wheeler is a longtime community volunteer leader, and has devoted energy to diverse organizations including Neighborhood House, Portland Mountain Rescue, and the Oregon Sports Authority. He is an Eagle Scout.When he is not working, Wheeler enjoys endurance sports, and successfully summited Mt Everest in 2002. He snow-shoed to the North Pole with his wife and regularly competes in the Ironman Triathlon.
He lives in Southwest Portland with his wife and daughter.​​
