Joel Greenbaum

Joel Greenbaum,  President and CEO

Joel Greenbaum brings a diversity of both private and public sector experience to ESC- Florida. After college, Joel worked as a professional musician/arranger/composer in New York City. He received a National Endowment for the Arts Award to compose a piece for jazz ensemble and orchestra. While in NYC, he built and served as President of Evergreen Recording, a professional recording studio, where he worked on recordings with artists such as John Lennon, Herbie Hancock, Harry Belafonte Hugh Masekela, Madonna, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and many more.

After volunteering with various nonprofit organizations, Joel decided to reconcile his social conscience with his work skills. As a result, he transitioned into nonprofit management, where he served as the Executive Director of Youth Resource Development Corporation in Poughkeepsie, NY. While there, Joel was at the forefront of the national service program, AmeriCorps, and was a founding member and Treasurer of the New York State Corps Collaboration, a statewide collaboration of youth service and conservation corps, and the 4th largest AmeriCorps Program in the country. Joel later moved with his family to Fort Lauderdale, FL, where he worked as the Executive Director of Leadership Broward Foundation.

In moving to Florida, Mr. Greenbaum’s childhood love for the sport of tennis was rekindled, and he jumped back into the private sector, where he founded and served as President of Match Point Tennis, a retail and e-commerce tennis store with 3 locations in South Florida. In 2017, after operating Match Point Tennis for 16 years, Joel sold the business so he could once again utilize his unique skill set, passion, and experience to assist South Florida’s nonprofit community. Joel brings his expertise and experience to ESC-South Florida in business development, leadership training, board development, strategic planning, marketing & communications, and fundraising, among others. Mr. Greenbaum obtained a B.S. from New York University and holds several additional nonprofit certifications.
