GreenPLS The Founders

J. Roy Ridgeway - President and CEO
Roy leads our sales and relationship developments focusing upon selling our Preferred Vendor Program to potential vendor partners across the country.  Roy along with Garry Johnson will also focus upon our internal sales initiatives to develop public and private sector sales opportunities for GreenPLS and our preferred vendors.  Roy has successfully established and participated in several different sales organizations, including, a mezzanine loan sales/financing group (where he was instrumental in growing assets to over $150 million and annual revenues to over $30 million) and several real estate residential and commercial brokerage groups (including Coldwell Banker where he maintained the #1 market share in Southern Maryland for over a decade). These various creative endeavors gave Roy the opportunity to evaluate companies, assemble project/customer information, implement creative financial solutions and oversee projects to completion, all leading to profitability.
Roy has a business degree in accounting from Benjamin Franklin University (now part of American University in Washington, DC).  Roy’s background in accounting and finance coupled with his knack for creating innovated solutions has been instrumental in the development of our financing programs and sales opportunities.
