Born and raised in San Francisco, Mr. Koller spent many years as a senior level marketing administrator in the California college and university system. In 2009, he left university life to become the Executive Director of the SS Jeremiah O’Brien, a WWII Liberty Ship berthed at Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco.
