Nils Behnke

Prior to joining St. Anthony’s as CEO in 2020, Nils spent more than a decade as a donor, volunteer, Board member and President. He is deeply committed to furthering St. Anthony’s impact serving vulnerable populations experiencing homelessness and poverty, and passionate about our Franciscan values, mission, and history.

Nils brings growth-oriented leadership acumen to the role of CEO. Formerly working in the private sector, he held prominent senior roles at leading management consulting firms Bain & Company and McKinsey & Company, and the role of CEO for a private biotech company. Nils earned his PhD and Master’s degree in Economics from the University of Cologne.

Nils and his wife and two sons live in San Francisco and are active parishioners of St. Dominic’s Catholic Church. Nils enjoys cycling and motorcycling (“anything on two wheels”), and practicing his culinary skills in his spare time.
