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 and product manager at ACT!, the best selling Windows contact manager in the ’90s, used by 4 million salespeople.
- 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.
- President and General Manager of ACT! with over 200 global employees from 1999 through 2004.
- Chief Marketing Officer at Infusionsoft where we saw growth soar from $15 million to $100 million.
I am from Chicago, but my wife and I have lived in Silicon Valley, Phoenix (for 23 years) and now we live in the Dallas, Texas. We have a son and daughter who have graduated college and are on their own now. 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, cycling, playing guitar, hiking and hanging out with my family.

In my spare time, I help Arizona software founders and my local software communities by creating and publishing Gregslist of Arizona Software Companiest and now Gregslist of Dallas-Fort Worth Software Companies.
Gregslist is used by thousands of job seekers, investors, founders, and community leaders every month.
