Chief Operations Officer
One Health Institute
Matthew “Matt” Blake joined the One Health Institute as its Chief Operating Officer in late 2012. He came to us as a serial entrepreneur, and his most recent startup in educational services brought him to Davis in 2011. With a long and storied career in business operations and an MBA from Georgetown University, he is responsible for managing the finance, human resources, marketing and communications, development, facilities, contracting, health and safety, legal, and bottle washing for the Institute, as well as each of its centers, laboratories, projects and programs. Matt earned his B.A. from the University of Colorado, Boulder in Environmental, Population, and Organismic Biology with a minor in Philosophy. He also has an A.A. in Liberal Studies from the College of San Mateo. And even though he has lived in five other states over the years, Matt is a proud Northern California native who lives in Davis with his wonderful wife and twin daughters.
