Mirimichi Green, a manufacturer of sustainable landscape products, has announced two new members of its team. 

Michael (Mike) Gill has joined the company as an inventory specialist and Erica Backus is its new product analyst intern, according to a company news release.

Gill relocated from Weirton, West Virginia, to take the role of  Mirimichi Green as inventory specialist in March. In this role, he will manage on-site inventory, track inventory maintenance and control equipment flow, oversee inbound and outbound shipments, and investigate inventory discrepancies.

Gill has 10 years of experience in day-to-day operations in the landscaping industry and industrial work in manufacturing plants, company officials said in the release.

“I’m very thankful to be able to work for a company who genuinely cares so much about the environment. It’s awesome to see people’s reactions when they try Mirimichi Green for the first time. They’re amazed by the results and practically fall in love with our products,” Gill said in the release.

Backus (right) assumed the position as product analyst intern for Mirimichi Green in May.

With an interest in analytics and passion for environmental economics, she is excited to become a part of Mirimichi Green’s growth. Backus has past experience in customer service and social media focused marketing.

She is working on obtaining a bachelors of science degree in business administration with majors in economics and finance and a mathematics minor at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. Backus has also studied abroad at Kedge Business School in Marseille, France.

Erica grew up in Portland, Connecticut and currently lives in Wilmington.

“I just recently discovered my passion in applying economics to sustainability to make people see 'going green' is not only beneficial to the environment but also financially advantageous. I hope to learn about Mirimichi Green’s sustainable process of manufacturing effective products, help educate people about the benefits, and tap into new markets. I am so excited to be a part of a company that shares my values and contribute to its growth," Backus said in the release.
