James Materkowski- President

Jim is the owner and President of the Green Cocoon, a Salisbury based Insulation company that specializes in eco-friendly insulation products and energy efficient building projects.  As a Plastics Engineer, Jim started the Green Cocoon in 2007 as the need for better quality insulation products and more professional and forward thinking installers became more apparent. Jim studied Plastics Engineering as UMass Lowell and is currently set to begin his MBA in January at UNH. When he is not working, Jim enjoys being outdoors. He likes to hike, bike, kayak and just enjoy the fresh air. Jim’s life motto can be summed up by his favorite quote: “A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions.”
