Bob is the mastermind behind Sustainable Community Media and ProudGreenHome, although he'll never admit to it. So we just call him the publisher and CEO.
Bob is as well known for his love of his alma mater, THE Ohio State University, as he is promoting all things green. (Bob insists on capitalizing THE for whatever reason!)
But a little about Bob. He was one of the four founding owners of Networld Media Group, which was where ProudGreenHome originated. He has 23 years of experience in distributing a range of products for the homebuilding and remodeling industries, and he has 13 years of experience in web development and online publishing. In other words, this guy knows what he's doing. He's also the co-founder of Sustainable Community Media, the parent company of ProudGreenHome.

Lance McGarvey is the director of business development for ProudGreenHome. Lance was raised in Owensboro, Ky., where farming is essential to sustaining the economy. Living in that environment impressed upon him at a young age how heavily we depend on our planet and how it should always be respected and cared for.
Lance has a background in the energy industry, with 11 years of experience as a natural gas broker serving North America. He worked with many large energy companies to help them meet their needs in buying or selling physical gas or help them hedge their assets through financial trading. Through the years, Lance became more and more aware of the need for more efficient, more earth-friendly means of meeting our energy demand.
Lance worked for nearly two years with Networld Media Group in a sales and marketing capacity. Lance is now thrilled to have the chance to help companies developing green products for more sustainable living to reach an audience that is seeking information on this important subject.
