Douglas Greenberg Opens Up About the Importance of Family
With a passion for travel, sports, skiing, and scuba diving alike, it’s family life which remains most important to former Morgan Stanley broker Douglas Greenberg. Here, the keen Portland Timbers fan and father of two shares his thoughts on the joys of family life as he opens up about hobbies, vacations, pets, and his planned trip to climb Africa’s Mount Kilimanjaro with his sons later this year.
“Family life is immensely important to me,” explains Douglas Greenberg, “and we regularly attend live sports events, partake in a wide variety of outdoor activities, and travel the world together.”
Greenberg and family, who own a chocolate-colored curly-coated retriever named Molly, have recently vacationed in the Southern Interior of British Columbia, with the broker and his sons now preparing to travel to Tanzania in Africa this summer to climb the continent’s tallest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro.
“Enjoying such monumental moments in life with my family by my side means the world to me,” suggests Douglas Greenberg, who spent more than two decades at American multinational investment bank and financial services company Morgan Stanley, headquartered in Midtown Manhattan, New York City.
Almost 10,000 Miles Traveled
From Portland, Oregon to Eastern Africa, the Greenberg family will trek through grassland and jungle before reaching the alpine forests and arctic tundra of Tanzania’s world-famous Mount Kilimanjaro.
At over 5,800 meters tall, Kilimanjaro’s highest volcanic peak, Kibo, soars above Africa’s second tallest mountain, Mount Kenya, by almost 700 meters. Positioned within Africa’s Great Lakes region, the Greenbergs’ trip to Kilimanjaro will see the family of keen hikers ascend close to 20,000 feet.
“My sons, in particular, cannot wait,” Greenberg adds, wrapping up, “and, as a family, we’re massively looking forward to undertaking this once in a lifetime challenge together.”
The Greenberg Family’s Trip to Kilimanjaro is Scheduled for June 2019.
