Rick Davis and David McCaughey join board of People For Puget Sound

Just an FYI for folks…. the leading environmental group working on Sound wide issues adds some high powered board members.

Rick Davis of Bellevue and David McCaughey of Bainbridge Island joined the board of the citizens’ environmental group People For Puget Sound in April.

Rick Davis, a Washington native, has been a financial executive at Weyerhaeuser, Cascade Natural Gas, and other area companies. He is an avid water sportsman and enjoys a family-owned cabin on Case Inlet.

“I’ve been close to the Sound my entire life,” said Davis. “People For Puget Sound shares my values. After a year volunteering on remediation projects and assisting staff with lobbying campaigns and building relations with the business community, I welcomed the opportunity to contribute at the board level. My personal goal is to help the organization become even more effective and influential in its mission to restore and protect our Sound.”

David McCaughey is regional accounts manager for the pharmaceutical firm sanofi-aventis. An avid boater, David is a volunteer and lead partner with the Seattle chapter of Social Venture Partners.

“I’ve come to know Puget Sound as a recreational boater exploring its incredibly rich and diverse water ways and I’ve come to know People For Puget Sound through my volunteer work with Social Venture Partners,” said McCaughey. “I’ve joined the board hoping to contribute to this effort to save the Sound and to preserve its character for years to come.”

People For Puget Sound was launched as a membership organization in 1991 to protect and restore the land and waters of Puget Sound through education and action. It currently has over 14,000 supporter households and an annual operating budget of over $2 million.
