MEET Russ Britton
Russ Britton is a native of small-town Ahoskie, North Carolina. He grew up helping with the family farm and oil distribution business, and occasionally sneaking away to surf the Outer Banks. Long before the establishment of Mirimichi Green, Russ enjoyed a successful career in banking where he spent 12 years building a financial consulting business with UBS in Wilmington, NC. Determined to operate his own business, Russ eventually returned to his true passion for working outdoors, solving real environmental issues, and protecting natural resources. Russ founded Eco Express in 2003 as a way of blending his love for the land with his ability to help people find economical solutions for their environmental problems. Eco Express is a subcontractor that focuses on hydroseeding, erosion control, and site restoration. During this time, Russ saw the growing need for sustainable products. With ingenuity and determination, he founded Mirimichi Green in 2013. Mirimichi Green manufactures a line of sustainable, organic, soil amendment products for businesses striving to be cost-effective while being environmentally responsible. Russ currently lives in Wilmington, NC with his beautiful wife Catherine and their two adventurous teenage daughters. He brings his Comfort Retrievers, Aspen and Forrest, to work whenever possible and has samples of all varieties of soil within reach of his desk. And occasionally (okay, frequently) still sneaks away to surf.
