Graduating from the University of California, Berkeley with Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration, Ted Forbath has long had an aptitude for managing finances. From 1995-2001, Forbath worked for the Walt Disney Company in California, assuming Financial Analyst, Senior Financial Analyst, and Finance and Operations Manager roles during his tenure with the company.
Forbath’s career took a turn in 2001, when he began his position as Director of Finance and Administration at the Episcopal Housing Alliance, Los Angeles, CA. He stayed with the alliance until 2003. In this role, Forbath acted as the fiscal and administrative director of a $5 million economic development and social services agency with 25 major projects and contracts.
Forbath began working with the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles in 2003. He’s served as both their Director of Finance (2003 – 2005) and their Chief Financial Officer (2006-present). In his most recent role with the Diocese, Forbath impressively acted as the financial and administrative leader of a 50,000-member diocese with 136 churches, 39 schools, 8,000 students, and 13 institutions across six Southern California counties from Los Angeles to the Arizona border.
Forbath will begin his CFO position at Breck School today, September 15th. Breck School is lucky to have him!
