Ron has been CEO of ABC-CLIO, an educational publisher started by his father 59 years ago, for over thirty years.  Marlys is the founder and principal of the Gladen Group, a design firm she started in Dallas 30 years ago.  They have lived in Santa Barbara for 27 years, and have three children ages 20, 22, and 24.  The family travels extensively, with Africa and South America the most recent favorites.  The children especially have learned many life lessons from visiting and working for social entrepreneurs in Kenya, Uganda, and Rwanda.
Through Boma Investments , the Boehms prefer to invest in for-
profit social businesses which create local jobs, can become self sustaining, and can support debt and/or return equity investments.   The Boehms like to support and/or invest in early stage, growing, or proof-of-concept projects in Africa, India, and the United States.  These include RISE, which establishes virtual global collaborations to solve global challenges (www.risebeyond.org), an international education company, a stove company in Africa, the Boehm Media Fellows at poverty alleviation conference Opportunity Collaboration, and the Knowledge Center for Social Solutions. 

Both Boehms participate on the Social Enterprise Networks (SEN) Executive Council of Young Presidents Organization/ World Presidents Organization, and are involved in the Ashoka Support Network which advises, mentors, and funds Ashoka Fellows.  They have also been advisors to other social and green businesses.
