Hi, I’m Tom Gregory.

I completed a PhD from the Center for Process Innovation at Georgia State University in July, 2014.

In 2007, after building a successful product for a new startup, I quit my job as Director of Software Development for Proton Communications, a learning management company in Utah, to go back to school for an MBA. At Proton, I was lead developer and project manager, and built a product that led to the company’s first profitable quarter.

I was an elected member of the Utah State Board of Education (USBE) from 2005 through 2008, and served as vice-chair for the Law & Policy Committee. Responsibilities with the Board included a seat on the committee charged with implementing the Public Education Job Enhancement Program, which provides financial incentives for educators in hard to staff subject areas. As a member of the USBE, I was also a member of the Utah School Boards Association and the National Association of State Boards of Education. I had the privilege of working with both a national study group, and later, the United Way, on financial literacy study groups.

I previously worked for a major internet retailer as a business analyst and project manager for the media sales division, as a contract web developer for local businesses, and as supervisor for a technical support office serving several thousand customers at a private university. I have a bachelor’s degree in computer science, and have contributed to the open source Javascript library script.aculo.us. I dabble lightly in Open Source efforts, and have also contributed to Paris/Idiorm.

I am an Eagle Scout, and work with the Boy Scouts of America as a Scoutmaster and District Committee Member. As a scouting volunteer, I have been Assistant Course Director for intensive, six-day leadership courses for adults (“Wood Badge”) and youth (“National Youth Leadership Training”). In the past, I’ve volunteered as a contributing editor for UtahPolitics.org (during the 2004 gubernatorial election), have worked a substitute teacher, and still spend free weekends as a soccer referee, a job I first began in 1992.
