Our Founder, Lennie Green (1963-2019)
Our Founder, Lennie Green, was a leader in telecom and technology, with over 20 years of experience as a consultant & manager, having built strong relationships with partners & clients.
Lennie started out working with telecom systems and carriers in 1996, building his knowledge & expertise with Shared Communications, ATG and XO Communications, before starting NWMAP in 2001.
Through Lennie’s knowledge and expertise, NWMAP has grown & evolved into more than just telecom, where it initially started.
Today, NW MAP is a full service, one-stop business consulting firm, encompassing telecom, technology, virtualization & more. It was always his vision to create something that could endure the ever-changing world of technology, building NWMAP into a company with a long-standing, elite reputation in this industry.
He credited his success to his understanding of customer service and being passionate about serving his clients – and no wonder, because he learned from the best!
As a young adult, Lennie worked in the restaurant industry, under Bob Farrell. You might recognize some of the restaurants that Bob built & ran for decades – Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlor, Stanford’s Restaurants and Newport Bay restaurants.
“Bob always put great emphasis on customer care being the number one priority,” Lennie says, and he “took this to heart and brought it with me to my business.”
Lennie has witnessed other business consulting firms giving a lower priority to customer service and client care, which did not sit well with him. He & his team strive to provide the best care to all clients, large and small, new and ongoing.
“My success comes from helping my customers be successful,” he says.
Lennie & his team are the trusted advisors that every client needs and every client depends on for their business.
Lennie passed away very unexpectedly in March 2019, leaving behind his wife, Yvonne & their daughter. Yvonne has assumed the role of President of NWMAP, carrying on what Lennie built.
Lennie enjoyed time with his wife and daughter, he was a Raft Master and had rafted all of the major rapids in Oregon, Washington & Idaho. Lennie was passionate about helping his local community and is an Oregon State University Alumni. (Go Beavers!)
