GREEN HANDS USA TEAM
CATHERINE BILLON, Founder
Catherine Billon has spent 20 years devising and launching new businesses in media and entertainment companies such as Time Warner, Discovery Channel, Columbia Tri-Star, National Geographic Television and two Internet start-ups. She founded Green Hands USA out of the desire to connect people, ideas, and information around a movement of positive social and environmental change. Although lately she's been focused on building Green Hands USA into the leading eco-friendly services provider, she hopes to get back to skiing in the mountains of Colorado some time in the distant future. She graduated from Brown University and Columbia Business School.
