Prior to Utah State University, Oldham spent 11 years working for Microsoft Corporation in sales, marketing, and management positions in the United States and overseas.
“I am thrilled to work with the team at Logan Regional Hospital,” said Oldham. “The medical staff, administration, and foundation representatives are the best anywhere, and they are our neighbors, friends, and community leaders. I look forward to sharing our many positive stories as we work with the community to further expand the value the hospital contributes to our valley.”
A Logan native, Oldham attended Logan High School and earned a bachelor’s degree in communications at Utah State University. He then completed a master’s degree in international management from the American Graduate School of International Management, Thunderbird Campus, in Glendale, Arizona.
