In addition to all of his entrepreneurial efforts overseeing an empire of more than 40 successful companies, Ron’s dedication to all God’s creatures extends to both the 2 and 4 legged kind. His love of the Florida wildlife and understanding of their needs to be protected motivates him to budget half of his time to Everglades conservation. He is currently serving as a Commissioner for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission and is the Florida Wildlife Conservation Point Commissioner over the entire Florida Everglades. In addition to this great responsibility, he was honored as 1 of the 4 finalists for the “2011 Conservationist of the Year” by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation.
