Blog : New Staff, Better Green Alliance

By Anne | Jun 17, 2015 | in

The Green Alliance is growing and changing to better serve and support our Business Partners as well as our member community. In addition to a series of forthcoming updates to our social media presence, our customer service and community outreach, we have also expanded our staff to include two new team members.

Rich Collins recently joined our staff as the new Assistant Director. Rich is a talented University of New Hampshire Whittemore/Paul MBA with a diverse background in technology, staffing, sales, marketing, and content development. Rich’s expertise lies in client support, his role will be to build and strengthen client relationships within the Green Alliance community. A strong proponent of authentic sustainability initiatives at the business level, Rich is actively involved in environmental conservation efforts, particularly in the area of cold water conservation. He lives on the Seacoast, and spends much of his free time exploring the great state of New Hampshire, in particular the White Mountains, with his fiancée Sharon and his two best canine friends, Scout and Cassie.

Anne Twombly brings her talent for engaging visual design and marketing as our new Marketing Assistant. Anne is a recent UNH graduate with a background in fine arts and creative business. She will perform a variety of supportive and marketing roles across the organization, including graphic design, using her creative skills to ultimately improve the overall visual experience of the Green Alliance. Anne has always been passionate about personal responsibility in respect to consumption. She believes it’s our duty to consider our options and be selective as to where our money goes as consumers and citizens of the world, supporting businesses with sustainable initiatives. While at UNH, Anne was a member and eventually captain of the Women’s Cross Country and Track and Field teams. The experience of Division 1 college athletics instilled in Anne a profound belief in the transformative power of collective focus, integrity and service.

Our new staff is excited to meet with and eager to hear comments, questions and suggestions from both the Green Alliance business community as well as the member community. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to either Rich at or Anne at
