Greg is a return-on-mission oriented entrepreneur and investor. Yahoo Top 100 on the Internet 2001 award for creating the Quicken 401(k) Advisor by TeamVest, the first collaborative online robo advisor platform. Open Finance Network (“OFN”), a turnkey family office and wealth management platform provider which managed over $4 billion and administered over $23 billion in assets. Consultant to Richardson Sports’ successful effort to land an NFL expansion team, The Carolina Panthers for Charlotte. Following the success of the Carolina Panthers expansion effort which required the use of funds raised in the first ever PSL stadium financing, a strategy invented by Max Muhleman, Greg assisted Muhleman as head of IMG’s Stadium and Arena Group in consulting many NFL, NBA and MLB franchises and owners.
While DJing his way through school, Greg also managed The Warehouse, the nation’s largest teen center at the time. His career peaked early, however, becoming “The Freebird,” a southern rock version of the San Diego Chicken for a top rated radio station in the Carolinas.
On a not so vain note, Greg is most proud to be married to his wife Marianela and to be dad to Wyatt, Eliza and Weston.
