TGP is extremely excited to welcome Rommel “QB” White to our team as our first ever full-time Finance Manager. Rommel, who also goes by “QB” or “RJ,” will be working to help prepare TGP for scale. He will lead day-to-day financial operations at TGP, in addition to helping us plan and budget for future growth.

Here at Grassroots, we address everyone by nicknames because it’s more fun for the kids, and quite frankly for us as well! What is your Grassroots nickname going to be?
My nickname is going to be “QB,” because I do all of the QuickBooks bookkeeping for TGP (among other things)!
We’re all about praising and celebrating each other for a job well done. We call these “shout-outs.” If you could give a shout-out to anyone right now, who would it be and why?

What are you most excited about this upcoming year?
I am most excited learn more about The Grassroot Project, and all of the individuals involved with Grassroots
