President and CEO, BioGreen Solutions in Bloomfield Hills. Smith went into the decontamination business in 2008 to assist businesses and others with large living spaces in preventing odors and outbreaks. He then acquired Ridder Thermal, an environmentally friendly bed bug remediation program, now called BioGreen Thermal Solutions. The company added five employees and doubled business in 90 days. Sales for 2010 are anticipated to be more than seven times those in 2009, due to the bed bug crisis and the company’s sought-after environmentally friendly process. BioGreen developed a proprietary fogging process to treat surfaces and air in a facility to decontaminate and prevent outbreaks instead of reacting after contamination. Clients include hotels, daycare centers, doctors’ offices, and gyms. The company services major hotels across 14 states and expects to reach all 50 states within months. Smith also owns BioGreen Odor, which helped hotels prepare for Michigan’s smoking ban by treating rooms with a proprietary fogging process to clean and remove odor. Smith received his bachelor’s degree in psychology from Morehead State University.
