Chief Financial Officer
Nubia Zagami
Before coming to Green Team, Nubia was one of the top financial officers at American Express, where she worked for ten years. Thing is, that was in Caracas, Venezuela, and when she and her young family moved to the US in 1993, she didn’t speak a word of English. Nubia spent the next few years raising her young children and learning the language. Now the kids are out of school, Nubia is fluent in English and we’ve got a financial heavy looking after us. When not crunching our numbers, Nubia likes to don her running shoes, play with her dogs and travel. She regularly indulges her love of books, movies, restaurants and music.

Project Manager
Elene Bukhaidze
It's only fitting that our representative in Georgia, the birthplace of wine, is deeply engaged in wine tourism. Ellie is a co-founder and chairwoman of the Wine Tourism Association, and is actively involved in the development of the wine tourism sector, one of the most prosperous and quickly developing industries in Georgia. Whenever we sit down at a restaurant table, we just hand her the wine list and get out of the way.

Art Director
Hyeona Kim
She’s of Korean ancestry, but Hyeona grew up in Malaysia (though she can’t speak a word of Malay). She joined Green Team Global in 2017, and balances her professional duties with academic ones, as she is presently studying Advertising and Design at New York’s School of Visual Arts. While Heyona is fully versed in the digital world, her true passion is decidedly more analogue—guerilla advertising. On many occasions, she has taken to the streets of New York to engage unsuspecting pedestrians in one of her social commentary, artistic or commercial campaigns. Most recently, she created campaigns centered around Halloween and the Women’s March. She is an avid lover of dogs and Netflix.
