RealGreen Announces New Leadership for 2015

Don Brown Named as President and Chief Operations Officer

Walled Lake, Mich. – December 23, 2014 – RealGreen™ is thrilled to announce the addition of Don Brown as its new president and chief operating officer (COO), effective December 19, 2014. Brown is responsible for day‐to‐day operations and future business growth.

Current President and CEO Joe Kucik is stepping down as president of the company he founded in 1984; however, will continue in his current role as RealGreen CEO, with a focus on fostering successful customer relations and new software and service development. Moving forward, the RealGreen leadership will report directly to Brown.

Brown brings a welcomed wealth of experience in the areas of sales, marketing, operations, service and engineering. He began his career as a district account manager with Hobart Brothers, located in Troy, Ohio – rising through the ranks to attain increasingly responsible positions including vice president of automotive division and president of Latin American operations at Fanuc Robotics in Rochester Hills, Mich.

Brown was principle owner of Mercury Products and Services, headquartered in Bloomfield Hills, Mich. and most recently served as president of Energy Products, Inc., located in Sterling Heights, Mich. His history of building and managing successful companies speaks to his fearless leadership; as well as his impressive knowledge and skills, which will be integral to the future success of RealGreen.
