Over the years, He has managed projects, products, hundreds of people, and—sometimes hardest of all—himself. Greg’s passion for technology and desire to form long-term relationships with his business partners and clients earned him the honor of being named a communications industry Channel Executive of the Year Finalist in 2009, 2010, and 2011. As an entrepreneur and principal of Plum Unified Communications, Greg has been recognized as an industry expert in the conferencing, collaboration, and unified communications space.
