Meet Desmond Duke

EcoResolve’s Founder and President, Desmond Duke, was born in South Africa. As a young boy he grew to understand the delicate balance on which ecosystems depend and thrive. After serving in the military, his desire to be a part of protecting that balance strengthened even more.  Upon completion of his Bachelor's Degree with majors in Conservation and Public Administration, he worked as a game ranger in Zululand which began a lifelong passion to work in industries that make a difference for the environment. He serves as the Treasurer on the Board for the Florida Association of Mitigation Bankers, as well as on the Board of Trustees for the Crew, Land and Water Trust.

Desmond Duke is a seasoned professional in the mitigation banking industry involved with managing, developing, implementing and marketing some the nation’s leading mitigation banks in the southeast United States.  Before founding EcoResolve, Desmond worked as the VP of Business Development for one of the nation’s leading mitigation companies.  His experience is in wetland, conservation and stream mitigation banking. One of the mitigation banks transferred the first federal credit and another was designated a Wetland of International Importance by the Ramsar Convention, an international treaty for the conservation and sustainable use of wetlands.

His 22+ years of experience in the mitigation banking industry includes successfully managing sales in excess of $125M in over 700 transactions, with his expertise being in the southeast region of the United States. Desmond is a very conscientious and humble person.  He places emphasis on relationships and always operates at the highest standards of business ethics and service. To this day, he remains personally involved in each and every EcoResolve project.

In Desmond’s spare time, he enjoys spending time with his family, fishing and surfing.  Desmond presently resides in Boca Raton, Florida with his wife and three children. Desmond emphasizes the need for younger generations to have a conscientious approach to ecological issues and enjoys spending time in the outdoors with his three children, so that future generations can continue to keep the environment in the forefront of their hearts and minds.
