Greensboro, NC (PRWEB) October 5, 2006
Martin Green, president of Greensboro-based brij Image and Information, Inc. will receive the Distinguished Alumni Award from the Bryan School of Business and Economics at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. A dinner and reception honoring Green, who graduated from the Bryan School with a degree in Information Systems and Operations Management in 1984, will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 3 at 6:30 p.m. at the Alumni House.
The award is given annually to alumni of any business program at UNCG who achieve success in business and who have made significant contributions to their profession and to the business community. “I know the success that I have achieved is largely due to the foundation that was built at UNCG,” said Green.
“Martin Green, and his wife Lou represent the kind of business and community leaders that any university would be proud and honored to call alumni,” said Dr. James K. Weeks, dean of the Bryan School. “Their success in business is matched by their commitment and passion to the community by providing opportunities for education and growth for area youth."
The company was founded in 1986 by Martin Green and his wife Lou Green, an alumnus of UNCG’s College of Arts and Sciences ’79, where she majored in sociology. Since then, brij has expanded to 35 employees, several of whom are Bryan School alumni. brij sells Oracle’s JD Edwards and IFS AB’s IFS Applications enterprise software and provides implementation services for companies from Texas to Delaware and provides a full range of business software applications for all types of business requirements.
In 2002, Martin and Lou Green formed Dustin’s GreenHouse, a donor-advised fund administered through the High Point Community Foundation, to honor the memory of their son Dustin. The fund invests in the long-term growth of Guilford County students through international travel, technology and academic programs both in and outside the traditional classroom. “I have learned how crucial education is to eliminating poverty and prejudice in the world today and travel can be one of the best educators,” added Green. “Our commitment to working with youth brings Lou and me a great deal of love and satisfaction.”
