Mr. Alexander Downing

Board Member, Past President



Mr. H. Alexander Downing was born in 1966 in Bowling Green, KY as the youngest of the five children from Dero and Harriet Downing.  Downing took the reins of the College Heights Foundation from his father in 1997 after serving as the CHF treasurer for the previous two years. Prior to his return to the Hill, he worked for Deloitte and Touche in Nashville, TN as a certified public accountant.  Downing is a 1988 graduate of Western Kentucky University with a degree in accounting.   During his tenure with the College Heights Foundation, Downing championed efforts to revise the investment policy for the Foundation and clearly defined the role of the CHF to be the primary beneficiary of scholarships benefiting the University.  Under his leadership, the CHF endowment grew to more than $40 million in assets.  Downing left the Foundation at the end of 2012 to become Chief Operating Officer of Franklin Bank & Trust Co.  Downing and his wife, Kelly, reside in Bowling Green with their three children.
