“On behalf of the Manhattan Beach Chamber of Commerce, we are so excited to have presented the inaugural Hall of Fame Award to Michael Greenberg,” said Jill Dunn, chairwoman of the Manhattan Beach Chamber Board. “He is an integral part of Manhattan Beach and the entire Beach Cities community. His generosity is unparalleled. He and Skechers have done so much for so many organizations including the Friendship Foundation, the Roundhouse Aquarium, our local education foundations, the Hirschberg Foundation, the Chamber of Commerce and countless others. Michael is a gem, and we are truly blessed to have him as a part of our wonderful community.”
“Real success isn’t measured by an individual’s growth, but how much we can have a positive impact on other people’s lives,” added Skechers President Michael Greenberg, who also founded the Skechers Foundation and Skechers Restaurant COVID Relief Fund to support the South Bay. “Manhattan Beach has been a wonderful hometown—enabling us to grow the Skechers brand, care for our neighbors and raise funds to help those in need. Our company will be celebrating 30 years here next year, and I’m grateful for how generous our town has continually been to the Skechers team and our entire community.”
