Under Greg’s leadership, I have seen a substantial shift in culture and strategic direction. A clear strategy was now evident, recruiting of talent was exceptional and culturally the business functions seemed to be aligned making technical, supply and sales collaboration between supplier and customer proactive. Greg has an open, honest and direct style that is imperative in modern business where supplier and customer relationships are more important than ever.

Working with Greg on the development of the Bisalloy brand over his 5 year tenure has been a rewarding professional experience. Greg had the foresight to see the potential for the brand and set about crafting a very clear vision that we worked towards over the course of his stewardship of the company. Greg brought his wealth of marketing and management experience to bear on Bisalloy Steels and completely revitalised the way the brand is presented and perceived not only in Australia, but also in the global performance steel market. Greg’s collaborative management and engagement style meant we were always able to discuss and develop new ideas as part of a very real partnership relationship that ensured the Bisalloy brand was always being presented in the best light as an important part of the Australian steel industry. I regularly draw on my experiences with Greg and Bisalloy as a leading example of the importance and effectiveness of clear brand and marketing leadership.
Leo Karema

Strategy Director, IMA Marketing

In my own businesses I have connected with Greg regularly over the years in relation to his ongoing leadership, support and mentor ship Greg in my opinion has a well-established and strong background working with organisations around driving performance through culture change. This involves building high-performance teams, establishing strong behavioural boundaries, building leaders and gaining their emotional support, as well as generally empowering and engaging teams across some of the global organisations he has worked with. For the time that I have been connecting with Greg during his 5 year journey of running in leading Bisalloy, I know for a fact that he took an organisation that had a culture of conflict and low performance, to a strong and top-down lead, high performance organisation. The financial results of Bisalloy speak for themselves For the time that I am in business I will continue to connect with Greg and always appreciate his leadership, cultural capability, as well as his ‘get to the heart of the problem’ approach.
