Green Global Consulting’s (Green Global) founder and CEO, Bob Sharon has today announced massive expansion plans beginning with a dramatic increase in staff as well revealing the mid-year opening of new offices in Asia.
Since inception 18 months ago, Green Global has gone from strength to strength, pioneering the change towards sustainable organisations. And the truth is that sustainable initiatives are and will be financially viable.
Sharon is a supporter of “The Startup Movement” proposed by Victor W. Hwang who says “innovation is not a solo sport. It thrives in supportive, diverse, connected, pay-it-forward ecosystems.1” The success of Green Global can be attributed to Sharon’s inherent push to create a company which embraces these values. With this in mind, the Green Global team is growing at an exciting pace enabling even greater plans for the company to be set forth.
The importance that Green Global places on innovative technologies allow them to deliver crucial returns to both the environmental and corporate bottom lines. They were delighted to welcome Paola D. Barreiro Estrada to the team in mid-January. As Green Global’s Technology Research Office, Estrada holds a Bachelor of Science in International Relations & Sustainable Development and an International Relations Diploma from Anahuac University in México City.
Considering economy, society and environment as the three pillars of sustainable development, Estrada’s objective is to seek greater customer satisfaction whilst delivering real and significant benefits to the customer’s bottom line and environmental impact.
With consumers demanding organisations take greater responsibility over sustainability, and proof that sustainable, innovative solutions will significantly reduce costs, Green Global are eager to inform the corporate world. Kelly Williams joined the team this week to do just that as Marketing and Communications Officer. Kelly has a Bachelor of Business Management and Marketing from Monash University during which she spent six months studying in México. Williams’s experience in marking, strategy and business development spans across both Melbourne and Barcelona where she worked for three years. Combining creative flair, a track record of innovation, intercultural knowledge and passion for quality, Williams’s role at Green Global is responsible for a broad range of marketing activities.
Green Global pride themselves on their unique culture and zealous commitment to customer satisfaction. This is evident throughout each of the five phases of implementation, right through to ongoing support and monitoring for 12 months after implementation to guarantee results.
Dave Templeton shares the company’s values prioritising customer satisfaction, employee empowerment and company profitability. As the National Sales & Channel Manager, Templeton brings with him extensive sales and sales management experience within the IT industry.
Educated in the UK and trained in electronics engineering in the RAF, Templeton immigrated to Melbourne, Australia with his family in 1980. Since then he has managed sales and support teams with Techway, StorageTek and APC/Schneider Electric, increasing sales productivity and achieving regular targets and long term engagements. His success is credited to his ability to get the best out of people and building them into a fighting force with clear responsibility and ownership.
Sharon says, “This is just the start with several engineers (mechanical & electrical) to join the growing team this March and April.”
When asked about the secret to Green Global’s early success, Sharon says “It’s not rocket science. It’s about how you treat people, both within your own organisation as well as your customers, suppliers, partners and other stakeholders. That’s why we’re such avid supporters of The Startup Movement which ‘recognizes that individuals are the only ones who can make the system better through their innovations, inventions, and creations. 1’”
