Donovan Grimwood started with the Small Business Environmental Assistance Program (SBEAP) in 1999 and has stayed with that program through about 6 different division changes (currently in the new Division of Stakeholder Engagement). In 2014, he was named the Small Business Environmental Ombudsman, though he still mostly does technical work in the SBEAP. He is active in the National network of other state SBEAPs. Currently he is Chair of the National Steering Committee of the SBEAPs, part of the Website Advisory Committee of the National SBEAP network, and part of the newly formed Environmental Justice workgroup of the NSC.
