Gerald Babao

Deputy Director

Gerald is a nonprofit “lifer” and brings a passion for the environment and over 15 years of leadership, management, and support experience. Gerald leads and monitors CAC’s internal operations, works closely with our Executive Director on the execution of strategy, and has complete business responsibility for programs and activities. Before joining CleanAIRE NC, Gerald worked for various emerging, national, and international nonprofits. However, he is most proud of helping athletes achieve their dream of becoming an Olympian/Paralympian. For years, Gerald worked tirelessly with the Olympic movement advocating for accessibility for people with disabilities in sport and the inclusion of canoe/kayak at the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio. When he is not at work, Gerald loves being active outdoors, traveling, rooting for his favorite Washington, D.C. sports teams, and exploring the craft beer scene wherever his travels take him.
