A Visionary and Transformative leader

Jonathan A. Wilson serves as the Vice President of the Mortgage Division at Liberty Bank and Trust Company in New Orleans, LA. He has enjoyed a successful 15-year career in the banking industry starting from humble beginnings as a clerk to evolving as an accomplished leader and influential force within his company and community.

Jonathan’s commitment to a spirit of excellence and inclusiveness, led him to champion an initiative to promote young leadership in the company, birthing The Justice Revius Ortique Leadership Institute, a community leadership institute co-founded by Wilson to elevate important issues and train emerging leaders to create sustainable change within their communities.

Something Greater is At Stake

Over 10 years ago, Jonathan committed himself to bolster civic engagement to advance and shape underserved communities by actively serving on a plethora of corporate and not-for-profit boards and committees to influence change. One of his most notable civic duties peaked in 2010, when he joined 100 Black Men of Metro New Orleans as an energetic member with an unwavering passion to influence transformative change in the lives of youth and families.

Sustainable Impact

His leadership in the 100 celebrated a remarkable evolution of record-setting chapter successes, illustrating the 100’s financial strength, positioning them for sustainable community impact. During his presidency, Wilson raised over 1.5 million dollars and grew annual revenue from $25,000 to $500,000, resulting in a 119 percent increase. Additionally, economic investments in over $55,000 were awarded to local not-for-profit groups and partnering organizations to provide scholarships to youth and support education advocacy programs.

A Clear Vision for the Future

Jonathan’s vision is for the 100 to become the nation’s strongest, most self-reliant African American volunteer organization, where local community investments and infrastructure will be strategically focused around our programmatic pillars.

Jonathan, born and raised in New Orleans, LA., earned a Bachelor of Arts in Political and Economic Philosophy from Wheeling Jesuit University in Wheeling, WV as well as executive leadership professional development including the successful completion of the Leadership School at Louisiana Banker’s Association and New Orleans Regional Leadership Institute.
