Private Ocean is proud to congratulate Greg Friedman, CEO and Founder, for his recognition as a 2020 Nonprofit Leader by North Bay Business Journal.
Every year, the publication honors top nonprofit executives, board members, and volunteers in the North Bay. In 2020, 24 leaders were recognized for their commitment to helping their communities in challenging times. Greg is a Board Member for The Marine Mammal Center, headquartered in Sausalito.
The Center is a global leader in marine mammal health, science, and conservation, and is the largest marine mammal hospital in the world. They advance global ocean conservation through three core areas: animal care, scientific research, and education. Annually, they respond to 10,000+ calls from the public reporting marine mammals in distress, publish approximately 20 peer-reviewed papers, educate 100,000 visitors and youth, and train 100+ marine science professionals from around the world. They bring decades of marine mammal experience to the conservation of endangered and threatened species and advocate for effective policies that protect marine mammals and the ocean environment.
“A significant challenge this year for The Center has been adapting and keeping pace with the ongoing changes brought on by the pandemic,” said Greg Friedman. “As a veterinary hospital, The Marine Mammal Center is considered an essential business, and as such is continuing to rescue and rehabilitate stranded marine mammals in need. I hope that in my role as a Board Member, I’m helping to raise visibility for the Center and to influence others to support their incredible work.”
North Bay Business Journal held a virtual event recognizing the honorees on Tuesday, December 15th at 4:00PM, and the winners are featured in the December 14th issue of North Bay Business Journal. Read his full profile on North Bay Business Journal’s website.
