Greg has been CEO of Network Overdrive for 21 years, building the capability to help Australian small businesses use technology to increase their security, build their productivity and increase their impact.
Before starting Network Overdrive, Greg provided counselling and housing support services to young people who witnessed domestic violence. In 1996, he wrote a NESB Young People’s Access and Equity Report for the Brisbane Youth Service.
In 1997, Greg decided to focus on Technology as a tool for social change and joined Unicare to start a community-focused ISP called DoveNetQ.
Impressed by the potential value of business for social change – and the power of technology to help small organisations to make big impacts – he started Network Overdrive in 1999.
In 2019 Network Overdrive took Fletcher IT Solutions under its wing to be a dedicated department to help for-purpose organisations protect their people and operations while increasing their capability to make a big difference.
