Leadership

Greg Thomas | Founder & CEO

A skillful navigator of transformation’s collision with public policy,  Greg is an imaginative and visionary strategist helping organizations to  shape favorable operating environments, accelerate growth, and manage  risk.   


Described as "able to convince an iceberg to move  because it is in your way", he is a committed advocate of free  enterprise who helped redefine the public dialogue about Microsoft and  open-source software, improving perception among government elites and  avoiding multi-billion dollar penalties by U.S. and E.U. anti-trust  regulators.  


He began his career in Washington, DC, helping to  develop the post-9/11 Congressional agenda on cybersecurity and privacy.   After public service, he advocated in favor of pragmatic,  innovation-friendly policy solutions for cybersecurity and data privacy,  and against government-mandated “backdoors” and other misguided efforts  to weaken encryption. More recently, he has focused on ensuring that  the Internet remains free from government control and accountable to  its’ global community of stakeholders.  


Greg maintains an  extensive network of relationships with key Congressional offices, think  tanks, the Administration, and, more broadly, with thought leaders,  investors, and technologists around the globe. 


Today, he advises  organizations addressing business priorities in regulated and/or highly  competitive environments - devising game-changing solutions that win.
