Clark County Business Briefing

Daniel Dingman has been appointed to fill vacated Battle Ground City Council Position 3. He took his oath of office during the Battle Ground City Council meeting on June 15.

Dingman will serve until the results of the November election are certified by Clark County, when the elected council member will take over the seat. Dingman is running for the seat along with two other candidates.

The seat was vacated by Shauna Walters, who resigned earlier this year.

Pauline Fong has been promoted to chief program and impact officer at the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust. She was selected from a nationwide pool of more than 200 applicants.

“Fong distinguished herself from the field through her unique background of cross-sectoral experience that is anchored in nonprofit and philanthropic leadership, as well as her robust understanding of, and connection to, the mission and work of the Murdock Trust,” said Romanita Hairston, Murdock Trust CEO. “We could not be happier with this promotion for Fong and for her commitment to serving the work of the Trust moving forward.”

Fong has served as a program director and internal team leader at the trust for seven years, where she has also led the foundation’s Women in Leadership enrichment program. Prior to joining the trust, she spent more than 20 years at InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, serving in a variety of roles developing leaders and supporting student development across the Pacific Northwest.

The M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust also promoted a number of staff members to new positions, including: Jill Lemke, vice president, grants management and training; Kimberly Thornbury, vice president, nonprofit leadership and development; Moses Lee, vice president, scientific research grants and programming; and Colby Reade, senior director of strategy and communications.

The Columbian welcomes submissions about Clark County residents or businesses, as well as regional business events. Information must be received by noon of the Tuesday preceding the intended Sunday publication date. Send to hope.martinez@columbian.com or fax 360-735-4540. Sales awards are not published.
