Home 9 Announcements 9 Seattle Audubon Welcomes New Board Members | September 2022

Welcome to the Flock, Andres and Megan

On September 11, 2022, we welcomed two new members to the Seattle Audubon Board of Directors, Andres Hiltbrunner and Megan Ko. In addition to serving on the board, they will also be joining the Finance Committee. They both bring with them a love and appreciation for birds and nature.

The board plays a vital role in ensuring Seattle Audubon has the strategic direction and necessary resources to fulfill our mission to advocate and organize for cities where people and birds thrive. Megan and Andres each bring their unique set of skills, talents, and experiences to our existing group of passionate and committed board members. We’re grateful for their willingness to serve!

Andres Hiltbrunner

Member at Large

Andres has lived in the Pacific Northwest, off and on, since 2006. He is a finance professional, having recently left a 15-year career at Amazon where he led teams focused on global cash management and banking infrastructure. Andres discovered both birding and livable, walkable cities while living temporarily in Europe, and is excited to be on the board to help sustain and defend those things here at home. When not in front of a computer, he enjoys hiking with his dog and baking.
