Frank Wolfe, HFTP
I’ve had the opportunity to work with Gregg on a number of projects over a number of years. My first impressions came from the great marketing he did for Libra OnDemand. Gregg was running this start-up company that at the time was competing with a business that I held an executive position at. His ability to create awareness and generate marketing excitement was really impressive, although I did not like it at the time! We ultimately joined forces via our acquisition of his brilliant start-up. Gregg and I worked directly on large customer engagements, complex deployments, and marketing strategy. His skill, background and focus on staying at the front edge of modern marketing made him extremely valuable. Gregg has a breadth of product, operations, and marketing experiences that will be especially valuable for early stage SaaS providers.
Shawn McGowan, Equity Asset Management
Gregg was great to work within a startup. He preserved proper focus on building success a little bit at time in a consistent and compounding fashion. He was also very good at seeing the big picture and worked in a modern, collaborative way.

His experience, coupled with his tenacious attitude were exactly what we needed upon his arrival. Gregg grew the Sales Operations domestically as well as internationally. Gregg was an absolute pleasure to work along side and was a huge contributor to INTELITY’s success.

Mike Blake, American Hotel & Lodging Association
For the greater part of my career I’ve had the pleasure of working with Gregg. He understands the workings of the hospitality industry and has deep knowledge of technology. And I’m pretty sure he knows everyone in the industry, too. His all-in marketing strategy and approach to messaging embraces all elements of media, which is something I admire. He understands that traditional vs new media is not the fight, rather it’s touching the recipient at exactly the right time with the right message through the right channel. His marketing strategies are fun and sometimes push the limits of a media company, but they create important, relevant, and interesting messaging that reach the audience – which is the ultimate goal.
Geneva Rinehart, Hospitality Upgrade

Gregg is a seasoned executive that balanced strategic brand and marketing management with driving short term results.

I am privileged to have had the opportunity to partner with Gregg while at PROVision.
