New Jersey Policy Perspective joins many across New Jersey and beyond in mourning the loss of former NJPP board member Herb Greenberg, who passed away on Jan. 19 after a long fight with cancer.
Herb was the founder and CEO of Caliper Corporation, a global talent management consulting firm. After losing his eyesight as a child, he earned advanced degrees with high honors from both City College of New York and New York University, and became a lifelong advocate for progressive causes and disabled and disadvantaged people.
Herb served on NJPP’s board from 2004 to 2011. He was instrumental in the fight to secure Family Leave Insurance for all New Jersey workers, as he knew how much it would benefit both his business and his employees.
“Herb left a proud legacy of professional and personal success in expanding opportunity for those in need, including through his commitment to New Jersey Policy Perspective,” said NJPP president Gordon MacInnes.
In lieu of flowers or food, Herb’s family requests that donations be made to Learning Ally, Helen Keller International, or SAVE, a Friend to Homeless Animals.
