George Grenley – Technology Expert
George has worked in the high-tech industry for over thirty years. His experience spans product marketing, field sales, design engineering, and program management. He has extensive experience with start-ups and smaller companies, but has also worked with larger firms. He understands the pressures companies experience as they grow.
For the last thirteen years, George has focused exclusively on helping companies market new products by creating the tools and resources customers need to use those products. This includes marketing plans, product literature, marketing communications materials, and sales training materials.
The software development industry has adopted ‘agile development processes’, a highly disciplined methodology for rapid software development. However, traditional methods of creating software support materials (e.g. manuals) have not kept up. George has worked with agile development teams to develop systems that create software support materials as rapidly as the software itself is created.
George holds a BS in Electrical Engineering from Michigan State University, and an MBA from the University of Phoenix. Contact him at grenley at plans2reality.com.
