Staff Bio


Patrick Cleary

Director of Community Prosperity and Investments
Bayside Office

(707) 267-9902

I have had a wide variety of careers: seventeen years on Wall Street, a brief stint as general manager of the North Coast Co-op, and over a dozen years as general manager of commercial and public radio stations. I plan on making my tenure at HAF my last career. I have served on a variety of nonprofit boards over the years, including the Humboldt Folklife Society, the Headwaters Fund, and Dell Arte.

I am also an avid amateur musician who plays the guitar, mandolin, banjo, bass, and piano, although not necessarily well. I am a graduate of Georgetown University and I consider working at Humboldt Area Foundation the best job in the county. I feel very lucky to be working for this community.
