  1. Greg is very approachable. I have worked here 15 years and he has been a true leader within his various roles and very well respected. Was thrilled when he was made the CEO. He has a lot of integrity and it really bothers him when something is not “right.” He wants to make things right and wants a wonderful Brainshark culture. We were in a bit of a down time a few years ago, and our culture needed to be changed. He worked very hard to change this. He was instrumental and had key input into our new core values that he lives by. He also is honest and shares wit us the good and the bad. His door is always open and he even implemented one day a week “Eggs with Greg” that anyone can come join to have breakfast with him and ask questions or share concerns.

  2. Greg understands the business space inside out and is not afraid to make hard decisions when required. Be it front line sales, middle management, or execs, he makes an effort to listen to feedback and implement changes where required. He truly has his finger on the pulse of every functional area of the org. Moreover, he truly cares about the well being of his employees, making for a very employee friendly culture. I’ve been in the SaaS space for well over a decade and have not worked at a company that cares about it’s employees as much as Brainshark does.

  3. Greg is a hands on leader, who is always open to hearing about new ways to do things. He is approachable and is regularly seen circulating around talking with our employees. One of his goals is that he wants Brainshark to be the best place where anyone has ever worked, and I think he has done a great job cultivating the culture to be just that.

  4. The CEO has called me by my name from day one. He knew exactly who I was and he was interested in getting to know me. He has implemented a program called ‘Eggs with Greg’ where he has breakfast with people across all departments to talk about our vision and things we need to improve as a company.
