Ron Morin

Interim Executive Director

Ron Morin is an experienced administrator with leadership, management and supervisory skills in the nonprofit sector who grew a small nonprofit of $150,000 gross to $4M in twelve years by designing creative programs for difficult social problems. Beginning in September 2017, Ron is the Interim Executive Director at the Friends of the Middlesex Fells in Melrose, MA. The Friends of the Middlesex Fells Reservation is dedicated to the protection and harmonious use of the Fells; promoting awareness, policies and programs to honor and preserve the ecological, historical and recreational resources of this urban forest reservation.

In his fellowship, Ron will be focused on streamlining organizational operations to ensure the Fells runs seamlessly and professionally. Although his fellowship work at the Middlesex Fells might be focused on operations, Ron is quite philosophical and believes it might be his life’s work to “save the forest.”

In his professional career, Ron was Assistant Director of Community Program Innovations in Cambridge, MA and Executive Director of NUVA, a non-profit agency that provided substance abuse, mental health, and homelessness services to Cape Ann-Gloucester, MA.
