Prior to founding AMG Consulting, Green was the CEO of Kent Display, Inc. (KDI). During his tenure as CEO, KDI invented and brought to market a new consumer product category, the eWriter and had an average annual revenue growth rate of 22% from his arrival in 2007 until his departure in 2018. First launched in 2010, under KDI’s "Boogie Board" brand, millions have been sold in over 30 countries around the world. The products are used in business, education, healthcare, military and around the home. As CEO of KDI, Green transformed the company from an R&D focused licensing company to a product-focused consumer packaged goods company with a global supply chain, sales, marketing and distribution. He led the construction of the first roll-to-roll LCD manufacturing line in the world, which is based in Kent, OH. This advanced manufacturing technique utilizes flexible plastic material to enable high volume, low cost, LCD-based eWriter products. The company currently operates 3 manufacturing lines in Kent, OH.
Green advocates nationally for U.S. manufacturing. He served on the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Manufacturing Council, the principal private sector body advising the Secretary of Commerce on manufacturing. He currently serves on Senator Sherrod Brown’s Ohio export advisory group. He has worked hard to rewrite the perception of Northeast Ohio’s rust belt manufacturing “from the “3 D’s” to the “3 H’s “ - from dirty, dark and dangerous to high-tech, high-paying, and high value. Green also drives local economic advocacy by serving on the Board of Directors for TeamNEO, JumpStart, the Kent State University Research Corporation, Cuyahoga Community College board of visitors, and the BRITE Energy Innovators. In addition, he also serves on the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland’s business advisory council and the Greater Cleveland Partnership’s manufacturing council.
