Hi I'm Gregg.

I'm a CEO and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father of 5 and husband of 21 years. I'm crazy about my wife...she's the best thing that ever happened to me. It takes mutual effort, humility, forgiveness, patience, and consistency but there is nothing more important to me in this world than making my marriage be all that it can be. I love my kids. I have a lot going on my professional life - which I enjoy - but almost everyday the most important things I do (or should do) relate to my interaction with my kids. Sending that last email, reading that last report, or doing that last whatever is never as important as reading a story to one of my younger kids or having a real conversation with my teenagers before they go to bed. I'm always trying to get better at this. Snow skiing is one of my favorite things to do. Many of my best days in the last few years involve skiing with my family. I love the peace and beauty of the mountains - especially in the winter. I like my work and I know that liking what you do is a blessing. I guess you could say that I am a serial entrepreneur. I like to start and build companies and help others do the same. It is such a challenge to create a viable company. I like the challenge and creative energy that goes along with that. I am currently CEO of a growing financial services company in the education industry and on the board of a financial software company.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a Mormon but for a few years as a teenager, I wondered if I wanted to continue that path (or any religious path for that matter). At that time in my life, I was focused on my then-current situation and didn't give much thought about the future. During the Summer of 1987, I had some experiences that caused me to reflect on my life and ask myself some tough questions. The primary question that weighed on my mind during that period was, "Who was I then vs. who I wanted to become in the future?" I concluded that I didn't like who I was and that I needed to change my path in order to become something different. I soon realized that changing my nature wasn't a one time thing or even an annual event but needed to be a daily occurence for the rest of my life. I also realized that applying faith in the atonement of Jesus Christ and repenting in His name everyday is the only way to really change who I was and become the person I wanted to become. So why am I a Mormon? Because I want to change. I want to "put off the old man" and become a "new man" as the Apostle PauI described in Ephesians 4. I want to learn of Christ and receive of his doctrine. I want to be a better husband, father, brother, and friend. I need to learn more patience, kindness, forgiveness and charity. I want to be numbered among the followers of Christ. I believe that Jesus Christ taught eternal truths and truly established a church when He was here on the earth as recorded in the New Testament. This church had apostles and prophets and the authority to perform ordinances that Jesus thought were important enough to receive Himself, such as baptism. I believe that all things that Christ taught and did were designed to give us a pattern of how to live our lives and thereby find happiness in this life and beyond. In short, I want to follow Christ and I want to be better. These things are taught in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by reading the scriptures and praying everyday. We try to read scripture as a family and pray together everyday too. It's not always perfect but it makes a difference in the feeling in our home. I also serve in the church in an administrative capacity. We have an unpaid clergy (everyone volunteers their time) and I support members of our clergy by coordinating meetings, training and communications across several congregations. My goal is to do my best to maximize the time that our church leaders can spend ministering to the needs of the members of the church as well as the non members of the church living in our area.
