Nathan Mendel is the Founder and President of Your Green Contractor (YGC), a wholly owned subsidiary of Mendel and Company Construction, started in 1997. As the marijuana industry was taking off in Colorado, Nathan realized there was a huge unmet demand for cannabis projects being constructed in the same fashion as other commercial projects, with schedules, deadlines, weekly meetings, good communication and continual updates. This led to the birth of YGC in 2011.
Nathan is a leader and expert speaker in the cannabis industry and has presented to numerous audiences in multiple states about the complexities of building marijuana projects. He has been quoted in multiple local, regional, and national publications and news stories about the evolution and best practices of these facilities.
In his free time, Nate enjoys playing softball, golf and helping out with charity projects and events through his synagogue, industry groups and any other group or individual in need.
