Fernando Viana

Fernando joins Northwest from the Valley School where he has served as the Director of Finance and Operations since 2017. Prior to his work at Valley, Fernando was a Chief Financial Officer for Trinity Health Systems, a managing partner in his strategic financial advisory firm, and held several senior roles in banking.  He also served as a trustee and chair of the finance committee at the Giddens School.

Fernando holds a Bachelor’s Degree from New York University in Politics and Economics and a Master’s in International Relations from Tufts University. Fernando is a NWS parent and in his cover letter he told us: “I find huge appeal in Northwest’s a global perspective, diverse and international community, urban engagement and, more than ever, valuing social justice and environmental sustainability in the everyday life of the school.”

One of Fernando’s references says about him: “Three key strengths come to mind for me for Fernando: broad expertise in independent schools and beyond, an independent thinker with a drive to learn, and a direct communicator who understands his role in the organization.”
