NOAA retains JDG to conduct the search for its Director, Global Ocean Monitoring & Observing Program
JDG Associates, Executive Search Consultants, has been retained by the NOAA’s Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research to assist in identifying its Director, Global Ocean Monitoring & Observing Program (GOMO).

The GOMO Director will also play a significant role guiding the development of the global ocean observing systems internationally.

- Leading and collaborating with national and international environmental partners to build and sustain global oceanographic and marine meteorological observing systems.
- Providing executive oversight and coordination of multi-disciplinary scientific research programs with a special emphasis on global ocean conditions and ocean resources.
