Greg was awarded an HND in International Trade and Business from The Glasgow College of Commerce. He then completed a BA in Business Administration before fast tracking onto a Post Graduate Diploma in Enterprise Creation at The University of Abertay's graduate business incubator in Dundee.

Greg has been involved in his family's retail, property, events and motor businesses since an early age. His keen entrepreneurial spirit saw him elected as the founding president of the Aspire Society for Enterprise whilst studying at Abertay. The university business incubator later recruited Greg as their Scottish Institute for Enterprise Intern, where he led enterprise initiatives, supported students with their entrepreneurial pursuits and travelled to Toronto, New York and Hong Kong to represent Scottish startups on the global spectrum.

Since graduating, Greg has worked with NESTA to launch their pioneering Scottish programme Starter for 6 which has supported over 350 innovative and award winning early stage entrepreneurs. He partnered in Tank Driving Scotland, a unique and high-growth outdoor experiences start-up and has since worked overseas in transport operations management and on East Perthshire regeneration focussed property developments.

Greg's background in commercialising ideas, project management and marketing, are combined with an opportunistic mindset, networking abilities and business development skills. His passion for travel and adventure drive his ambition of becoming a globally capable Scottish business leader.
