As President and CEO of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF), William Baker guides the CBF in its efforts to “Save the Bay.” Founded in 1967, CBF leads the fight to reduce pollution and improve water quality throughout the Chesapeake’s six-state, 64,000 square mile watershed. A graduate of Trinity College, William joined the CBF in 1976 and became CEO in 1982. Under his leadership, CBF received the nation’s highest environmental honor in 1992—the Presidential Medal for Environmental Excellence. In 1993, The National Geographic Society awarded CBF its annual Chairman’s Award.
