Jorge Blandón

Executive Vice President

Jorge Blandón joined FII in 2009 and leads the Technology and Data division for the organization. With technology and data, Jorge and the Analycts4 team are challenging the stereotypes of low-income families, showcasing their initiatives and sharing the progress they make on behalf of themselves and their communities. Jorge is proud to take those insights and transform them into feedback for families across the country, model different approaches to accessing social and financial resources and identifying partnerships that are tailored to the unique needs of the families that are part of FII. Prior to joining FII, Jorge worked for 8 years in the financial securitization industry, where he underwrote bond financings for municipalities and utilities, and cooperated on multiple infrastructure projects in the U.S. and Latin America.

Jorge currently serves as a Trustee for the Whitman Institute, a foundation that focuses on trust-based investment practices. He is also a member of the Re-Imagining Measurement & Evaluation Advisory Committee for Monitor Institute.  Jorge is a 2015 Fellow of the San Francisco OCEIA – CORO Community Engagement Partnership and was named Urban Innovator of the Week by the Urban Innovation Exchange (http://www.uixcities.com/innovators/jorgeblandon.asp).

Jorge completed an MA in International Relations from the University of California in San Diego and has a BA from Amherst College. He is a Woodrow Wilson Summer Fellow from Princeton University and proud graduate of A Better Chance – Amherst.
