Director of Human Resources

Nancy Derbish brings a creative and strategic approach to Human Resources at Build It Green, and supports its rapidly growing staff. She takes pride in helping others to build their management and leadership skills, and strives to provoke questions to generate discussion, discovery, and identification of the details needed to find the best approach or solution. Her arrival at Build It Green is a natural fit given her versatile HR experiences in both the non-profit world and with a for-profit world leader in the building control technologies and systems business.

Most recently Derbish served as a Human Resources Consultant with ThinkHR, a Pleasanton-based HR knowledge solutions company whose mission is to provide HR expertise using technology with a human touch.  Prior to that she served for eight years as the Senior Director of Human Resources with the Girl Scouts during a period of great change, when five smaller councils were merged into the newly formed Girl Scouts of Northern California Council. With GSNorCal she participated on collaboration teams to implement integrated Payroll & HRIS solutions and to identify cost effective employee benefit programs. Before that she worked with Siemens Building Technologies, the North American market leader for safe and secure, energy-efficient, and environmentally friendly buildings and infrastructures serving in various HR roles.

Nancy earned her B.S. in Business Administration/Management at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia and recently earned the Society of Human Resource Management Senior Certified Professional (SHRM-SCP) designation.
