During 30 years in the software and technology business, nothing has been more rewarding to me than creating big and meaningful companies and working with great people.
I was fortunate to be part of the startup and growth stages of three great companies that have since created over $1 billion in total revenue in the CRM software industry:
– As an early employee at ACT!, the best selling Windows contact manager in the ’90s, used by 4 million salespeople.
– As a co-founder of SalesLogix, the first mid-market CRM software, which went public in 1999 and was bought by Sage plc (LON: SGE) in 2001 for $300 million.
– As Chief Marketing Officer at Infusionsoft where we saw growth soar from $15 million to $100 million.
I live in Scottsdale, Arizona with my wife and our dog. We have one kid in college and one just who just graduated. We try to get up to Park City, Utah as much as possible in winter and summer. When I’m not working, I enjoy swimming, skiing, playing guitar, hiking and hanging out with my family.
I am the Founder and CEO of Scaling Point. Scaling Point helps early-stage growth companies successfully grow from startup to scale-up by finding the unique leverage point inside their business that propels them to the next level.

In my spare time, I help Arizona software founders and I also publish Gregslist of Arizona Software Companies.
Gregslist is a comprehensive list of over 350 software (SaaS) companies in Phoenix or Tucson in Arizona. There are currently over 290 Arizona-based software companies and over 70 remote offices of non-Arizona software companies on this list. I update the list monthly with new information.
