A long-time, leading Washington real estate developer, Akridge founded and still chairs the Trust for the National Mall, which assists the chronically cash-strapped National Park Service to restore and maintain one of the capital’s major reference points. Akridge is also a trustee and leading supporter of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and the Eastern Shore Land Conservancy. Leading by example, Akridge has turned his Eastern Shore estate into a model site for protecting wetlands and wildlife.
