Greg Nelson
Carlsbad, California
Greg Nelson was 9 when he joined the Boys Club of Carlsbad. Separated from his father, his mother worked two jobs and needed safe supervision for her two sons. Greg got his first job doing maintenance at the Club; he eventually became its executive director. While Greg went on to found two successful orthopedic companies, he never forgot the place where he found friendship, fun and mentorship. He spearheaded a campaign to build a new Clubhouse, saying, “If I support the Boys & Girls Clubs of Carlsbad continuously for the next 100 years, I still will not be able to give back what it has given me.”
