While at Amazon, Greg focused on Fortune 500 customers in southwest United States and achieved 360 percent revenue growth for that territory.

“Greg’s retail, e-commerce and supply chain experience will be a tremendous asset for Reddwerks moving forward selling to Fortune 500 customers especially in the retail and distribution markets,” said Jean Bélanger, Founder and CEO at Reddwerks. “Large distribution facilities can generate over 300,000 events and inventory moves per day - from the receiving gate to conveyors and sorters to the shipping - and more than ever, users need dynamic software and real-time business intelligence tools. Our Reddwerks software is the first event-driven WMS and WCS software specifically targeted for use by the largest Tier 1 users where real-time performance and out-of-rders execution are necessary for maximum productivity coupled with the lowest possible operating costs. Batch-based WMS and WCS software simply cannot keep up with so many events requiring instantaneous and automated decision making so an ever increasing number of Tier 1 accounts are coming to Reddwerks to provide them with one software solution for all their warehousing and distribution facility needs.”
Greg received a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from Northern Illinois University. He will be based in Reddwerks’ Austin TX headquarters.
