When he was just 23, Erik Hanberg was hired to run a non-profit arts organization with an annual budget just over $600,000. Two years later, he had increased the budget to $800,000, and increasing fundraising more than 400%.
Since then he has worked in development at a multi-million dollar non-profit, and has volunteered on many boards.
He is currently the Executive Director of a small civic non-profit and sits on the distribution committee for a foundation that gives away more than $200,000 a year. In 2011, he was elected to a six year term on the Metro Parks Tacoma Board of Commissioners.
