Mike Dunmyer
Executive Director of
Ocean Champions

Mike Dunmyer is the Executive Director of Ocean Champions. Before joining Ocean Champions, Mike created, developed and led strategy, finance, marketing and operations organizations as a Vice President in the Fortune 500 world. From 2006 - 2009, Mike also served on the Ocean Champions Board of Directors. During that time he led a successful strategic planning and implementation effort and also managed the Board’s Executive Committee. Mike has an MBA from Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business, and a BA in Economics from Washington and Lee University.

Mike has a great love for the ocean that comes from growing up in California, Hawaii, and the Delaware shore. He is a surfer and a grassroots activist for the Surfrider Foundation’s Capitol Chapter, and serves on the National Aquarium Conservation Center’s Board of Directors. Mike, his wife and their two daughters live in Arlington, Virginia, but make frequent soul enriching journeys to Dewey Beach, Delaware.

About Ocean Champions - Ocean Champions, a 501(c)(4) organization, with a connected political action committee (Ocean Champions PAC), is the first national organization of its kind focused solely on oceans and ocean wildlife.
Our goal is to create a political environment where protecting and restoring the oceans is a priority of federal and state governments. We do this by helping to elect pro-ocean Congressional candidates and working to defeat bad ocean candidates.  We then engage with members of Congress to pass pro-ocean laws and shoot down bills that would harm the ocean.

Ocean Champions is the only ocean group focused on Congressional politics.  By endorsing and supporting pro-ocean candidates in their election bids, we
are building political power for the oceans in Congress.  We maintain a steady presence on Capitol Hill through our strategic lobbying activities and leverage
our unique relationships to get results.  The members of Congress are aware that our community is watching their performance, and they are aware that we expect them to follow through on commitments made to voters and to the general public.

No other nonprofit organization, and no other ocean group, works to elect pro-ocean Congressional leaders and build strong relationships with members of Congress who champion our oceans.
