Junior Achievement of the Palm Beaches & Treasure Coast, which empowers young people to own their economic success and reaches almost 20,000 students in Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie and Hendry counties, has named two new board members: Melissa Nash and Blanca Greenstein.
Nash is president, CEO and founder of Accounts Receivables Inc., based in West Palm Beach. She developed ARI to provide all of the accounting services necessary on the revenue side as an outsourced function. Since 2007, ARI has provided full-service collection services for small businesses and medium-sized businesses, professional services, governmental agencies, as well as homeowners’ associations and condominium owners’ associations.
Nash began her career as a credit manager and senior accountant, including 12 years as a business manager with an architectural firm. She also was a business development director responsible for sales and marketing of new home communities for builders and developers. Nash and ARI were featured in Inc. magazine’s 11 Top Businesses You Can Start in Your Pajamas for 2009, and she was recognized as a 2011 Woman Extraordinaire by Business Leader magazine.
Greenstein is the founder of the law firm Greenstein & Associates. She has been practicing law for 20 years, and her firm has offices in West Palm Beach, Lake Worth and Wellington.
Greenstein’s area of practice is business law and financial services litigation, and she represents several publicly traded corporations. The firm is a full-service law firm, also offering legal services in the areas of family law, personal injury, wills and immigration.
One of the core values of the firm is training, and the West Palm Beach office has a training room that seats 25. The goals of Junior Achievement therefore relate very much to the firm’s core value of education and training, which is what drew Greenstein to become involved with Junior Achievement.
