2011 Annual Report

 

GreenStar’s Council and staff accomplished much over the last year and are continuing to make improvements both behind the scenes and in the stores. The hiring of Brandon Kane as our new General Manager (GM) in July 2011, after a lengthy search process, was a great relief for Council, and we are all benefiting from the great work that he, our other managers and all of our incredible staff members are doing.
