The Boys & Girls Club of Monterey County (BGCMC) is pleased to welcome Robert Montgomery to their Board of Directors. Montgomery will take part in his first Board meeting Thursday, December 14th.
“I am excited to be joining an organization that cares so deeply about the youth of this county,” he said.
Montgomery brings a wealth of experience to the BGCMC Board, including his time in the military and his legal background. He graduated second in class at West Point before attending Oxford University as a Rhodes Scholar. Following a tour of duty as an infantry officer in Vietnam, and law school at Berkeley, he was assigned as Assistant to Army General Counsel at the Pentagon. After serving in a series of senior federal agency legal positions, he embarked on a 30-year career in private law practice in Washington, DC, ultimately retiring from Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton and Garrison in 2005.
His nonprofit experience includes service as a Monterey County CASA foster child advocate, a member of the Advisory Board for the Center for Non-proliferation Studies of the Monterey Institute for International Studies, and as a member of the Board of Trustees of the Big Sur Land Trust, where he served the last two years as Vice Chairman.
