Meet Board Member Wilson Jones

Wilson Jones is the president and CEO of Oshkosh Corporation, a position to which he was appointed in January 2016 after serving in several leadership roles since joining the company in 2005. Throughout his career, Wilson has cultivated a servant-led leadership model with a focus on valuing diverse opinions, fostering an environment of trust, developing others and acting with humility. These efforts to build a culture around putting people first have contributed to the many recognitions Oshkosh Corporation has received.

Wilson has a strong passion for giving back to the communities in which Oshkosh Corporation team members live and work. Growing up in poverty, he understands the positive impact non-profit organizations can have on families that are struggling to make ends meet, and on children who need additional guidance and support. This strong conviction for providing basic needs and youth mentoring has fueled Wilson’s desire to serve on the board of the Boys & Girls Club of Oshkosh.

Wilson, his wife, Jane, and their children, Jake and Emily, enjoy traveling, boating, attending performing arts events and cheering for the Green Bay Packers.
