MIAMI, March 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Green Innovations Ltd. (OTCQB: GNIN) (OTCBB: GNIN) ("Green Innovations" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that Mr. Philip C. Rundle has agreed to join the Company's Strategic Advisory Board. Mr. Rundle is considered a visionary business leader with over 20 years of extensive domestic and international experience in the tissue, diaper, wipes, and feminine care products business.
"Philip's direct industry experience at Kimberly-Clark and more recently at a leading USA tissue manufacturer make him ideally suited to help guide the Green Innovations team as we continue to execute our business strategy," stated Bruce Harmon, Chief Executive Officer of Green Innovations. "I look forward to working with him to gain and apply his unique insight to potentially accelerate and expand our growth plans."
During his career, Philip spent 16 years with Kimberly-Clark, a $21B leading international consumer goods company.

In 2003, he was named Vice President of NATO Brand Development, which brought him back to the USA. In this role, Philip led the effort to revitalize revenue and profit growth, and directed an international team of employees. His most recent industry role has been as CEO of a leading tissue manufacturer based in North America, where his efforts led to double digit growth and brand leadership for the past three years. He currently consults for a leading private equity firm on potential acquisitions in the consumer products group (CPG) field. Philip has a Bachelor's Degree in Marketing from Damelin College and an Advanced Management Diploma in Business Administration from the University of Witwatersrand in South Africa.
"In many ways, Green Innovations is where my previous company was when I first joined their team a few years ago," stated Rundle. "I was able to use my industry contacts, insight, and experience to help establish them as a leading paper products supplier in the USA very quickly. Now I'm eager to utilize some of what I learned to help Green Innovations build their brands and achieve their sales and distribution objectives."
The Company's Strategic Advisory Board now consists of four members; Kalpesh Parmar, Mark DeFilippo, Michael Perfetti, and Philip Rundle.
