He is a Navy veteran, businessman, and civic leader in the greater Seattle community and is the owner of the Bothell Chick-fil-A in the Seattle area.

“Matt is a strong addition to National CASA/GAL Association’s board. He is passionate about helping all youth be successful.

Isenhower attended the U.S. Naval Academy and served as a naval officer before earning his master’s degree in business administration from Harvard Business School. Prior to becoming a Chick-fil-A franchisee, Isenhower worked for the Burger King Corporation as senior director of operations and as a senior product manager at Amazon.

Isenhower is active in his community, serving on the boards of the Bothell Kenmore and Woodinville Chambers of Commerce. He was previously co-president of the Lake Washington Schools Foundation.

He joins the existing board of trustees headed by Dr. William Bell, president and CEO of Casey Family Programs.
