Greg is a native Texan and currently lives in Dallas with his wife and three children. Greg received his Bachelor's degree in Economics from the University of Texas at Austin. Upon graduation, he worked full time while pursuing a Masters of Accounting degree from the University of Texas at Dallas.
After completing his Masters, he accepted a position with Ernst and Young in Audit and Assurance Services, where he worked with several large SEC clients. This led to his interest in business management. He later accepted a position with America's Auto Auction, where he worked directly with the President/CEO and was a key player in growing a very successful business. During his tenure, Greg learned the 'ins and outs' of managing a start-up company and was bitten by the entrepreneurship bug. He eventually left AAA to start his own company.
In 2008, Greg founded SoftTec Products, introducing a patented foam flooring product that was much safer and more slip resistant than traditional tiles. The product concept was exceptional, but the manufacturing process struggled with quality issues. Along the way, Greg learned a great deal about the floor safety market. He realized that making existing floors more slip resistant was a more cost-effective and practical alternative to floor replacement.
To that end, Greg worked with a chemist to formulate and develop a chemical solution that transformed existing slippery tiles into much safer, slip-resistant flooring. It accomplished this transformation without altering the color, sheen or texture of the original tile. The product was so effective that it became the focus of his company. Greg renamed the company SlipDoctors and began working to build products specifically focused on floor and bathtub safety.
SlipDoctors has become a recognized expert and industry leader in floor safety. Over the years, the product line has expanded from Stone Grip to over 100 product variations with options to treat every type of surface.
Sales revenues have doubled year-over-year. The market has expanded from regional to international in scope, with over 75 Solution Providers marketing their services using SlipDoctors' products worldwide. Its 300,000+ customers include an impressive list of major corporations, hotel and restaurant chains, sports franchises, resorts, hospitals, senior living facilities and government departments all over the world.
Greg has also taken an active role in national slip-and-fall standards development committees. He currently serves as Committee Chairman for the ANSI/NFSI B101.4 standard, that establishes safety standards for bathtubs, showers and pool decks. His committee is represented by major insurance companies, bathtub manufacturers and engineering companies who work together to develop new industry construction and conformance standards.
In a short period of time, Greg has become one of the key leaders in this evolving industry. He is highly respected for his knowledge, integrity and leadership skills. His philosophy and management style has resulted in recognition for his superior reputation for product quality and customer service.
