Green joined the firm in 2008 as Energy Program Director. Her experience serving private, public, and federal clients had already established her reputation as successful company leader. Equipped with keen business acumen and a strong understanding of client service, she quickly advanced into higher leadership roles. She was named President in 2018.
As President, Green implemented service strategies and market expansion to position the firm for future growth. Her client-centric approach and emphasis on synergistic operations have become the pillars of Pond’s business model. Her execution of the firm’s mission has propelled Pond’s national presence, now with 20 locations worldwide and a workforce of 550+ professionals.

Over the last two years, Parker and Green have worked with the Board of Directors to carefully plan and execute a strategy to ensure a seamless transition. Together, they have put in place executive leadership who reflect Pond’s enduring commitment to their clients and their people.
