RICHARD GOLDMAN is the retired General Manager (2003-12) of the Pearlstone Conference & Retreat Center in Baltimore. During his tenure he also served as the Director of Sales and Marketing and developed a broad range of new programs and marketing initiatives. These included an organic farm, a Pearlstone to the Bay trek (hiking, canoeing, biking), extensive residential holiday programs, and Pearlstone became the first facility of its kind officially recognized as a "green center" in Maryland. Extensive use was made of targeted marketing and social media. Occupancy and revenues tripled and an inherited deficit was transformed into a sustained profit.
