For Salma, it’s all about the 6 rights: materials, time, place, price, quality and partners. For her, you can’t have one without all the others! Since this the start, this has been Riverside’s way. As one of the founders, Salma believes that Riverside can be a best-in-class corporate example, bringing compassion, pushing what’s possible and leaving the planet better. When not reimagining what’s possible, Salma’s on the trails with her bike, her family and if it’s Friday evening, a delicious piece or two of cheese!
