Brian Goldman, VP Resource Development

Chief Financial Officer at Sani-Tech West

Brian is the Chief Financial Officer at Sani-Tech West in Camarillo. His wife, Jen, was diagnosed with EGPA (formerly Churg-Strauss Syndrome) in 2010. Despite going to the best doctors and trying all of the available treatments, Jen passed away in November 2018, just one week before her 47th birthday.

“I lost my wife, soulmate and best friend that afternoon,” Brian says. “I cannot think of a better cause that is closer to my heart that also honors Jen and her brave fight.”

Brian hopes to use everything he learned and experienced during those eight years to help others. “I also hope to use my professional background to help the VF grow,” he explains, referring to his 23 years of experience working for nonprofits. More than half of which has been at the executive level.

He also has experience serving on other boards, including the Make-A-Wish® Foundation for the Central (California) Valley, the Fresno Chaffee Zoo and his son Brandon’s soccer club. In addition, he has volunteered for various organizations over the years.

“Add in that I was a spouse and caregiver to someone who lost her life to vasculitis, and I come in with the ability to be a board member from many perspectives,” Brian promises. “I have passion for the cause.”
