Pablo Banhos earned a Bachelor of Arts in both Political Science and International Studies, as well as a Master of Arts in International and Comparative Politics. Because of donor generosity at Wright State University, Pablo, who was born in Brazil, was able to achieve his dream of swimming and receiving an education from an American university. His personal accomplishments at Wright State turned him into an enthusiastic higher education professional who raises money to provide a similar education for deserving students. While at Wright State, Pablo started his career in higher education philanthropy which set a solid foundation for where he is now. He is currently a Director of Major Gifts at Ohio Wesleyan University and leads a team with the goal of securing philanthropic support for the students, faculty, staff, and programs. Pablo’s most recent notable accomplishments include individually raising more than $10 million for his university.
Pablo is thrilled to be part of the Dean's Leadership Board because he believes in paying it forward and contributing back to his beloved alma mater. Pablo lives in Columbus with his wife and young son.
