About Dr. Gregory Maassen

Dr. Gregory Maassen is a multimedia, strategic digital marketing, videographer, and (interim) manager. He has over 23 years of experience. This includes 18 years of senior management experience with the IFC/World Bank and USAID programs in Armenia, Southern Africa (15 countries), Afghanistan, Russia, Iraq, Macedonia, and Jordan.

He specializes in managing and restructuring large, complex, and high-profile donor-assisted programs, videography, multimedia production, and strategic digital marketing. Additionally, he taught at universities in Afghanistan, the Netherlands, Macedonia, and Indonesia (MBA executive courses).

In 2019, Dr. Ahmet Hoke at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, diagnosed Gregory with post-infectious small fiber neuropathy. He subsequently introduced Gregory to the Foundation for Peripheral Neuropathy for its wealth of patient resources and support.

Gregory actively participates in the Foundation’s PN-patient outreach and education programs. He launched a fundraising and public awareness campaign for the Foundation in 2022, cycling 4,700+ miles across America on an e-bike through E-bike Lovers, raising $180,000 for research and education while establishing a new cross-country bike route.

Gregory is the recipient of several awards. These include USAID’s Partnership of the Year and Oracle Innovation awards. He was also a Fulbright recipient.
