About The Green Group LLC …

Andrew Green began his career in Silicon Valley as a technology professional, later moving to the East Coast to join eCommerce companies selling textbooks and photography services. When the dot-com bubble burst in the early 2000s, Andrew found himself unemployed with a new mortgage and a baby on the way. After evaluating what went wrong in the dot-com bubble, he began importing products from overseas and storing them in his basement for resale. He started his business in February of 2002 with just one employee, and by August he had a moved into a small warehouse. Today, the Green Group LLC sells a variety of items including telescopes, microscopes and glow sticks. In 2010, during the famous ‘snowmageddon’ storm in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area, Andrew’s business came to the rescue when they opened their warehouse so that Howard County Emergency Rescue could buy glow sticks to be used for emergency lights.

Owning my own business enables me to provide my employees with a rewarding, challenging and financially stable work environment. It also provides me with personal flexibility to be more available to my own family and friends.
