The team behind green.ch
Our business consists of bits and bytes, data cables and a study infrastructure. But that is only part of our success. Much more important are the people behind the company – manning the phones, dealing with technology or coordinating the chat room. With our committed, efficient team and several decades of experience, we are always here for you. Get to know our senior management team:
