David Groves is Executive Director of Private Capital for Public Good. Prior to PCPG, David worked for a conservation-focused nonprofit advocacy organization in Washington, DC. He spearheaded a comprehensive campaign that resulted in passage of a federal law to restrict the flow of illegally sourced wood products into the United States. The law earned the United Nations’ 2011 Future Policy Award for being the world’s best new forest policy. Following his time in Washington, DC, David earned a sustainability-focused M.B.A. from Presidio Graduate School in order to learn how the private sector, and the capital markets in particular, can be utilized to advance conservation priorities.
