After graduating from the University of Washington, Mr. Grey joined the telecommunications industry working for International Telcom Limited (ITL) - a pioneer in the overseas "callback" system. Shortly after joining ITL , Mr. Grey helped form a partnership with Cognigen Networks Inc. This relationship blossomed and Cognigen took on new vendors and grew from just a few thousand to over 200,000 sales agents with more than two million customer accounts created for various vendors. It was during this time he was mentored by master computer programmer Kevin Anderson and helped create the first dynamic web sites and online sales processes for telecom agents. This was a revolutionary development at the time.
Mr. Grey continued his software career with Telarus, where he built online back office platforms to support a large number of partners. He would go on to join CommandLink in 2011 as the first-full time employee and develop a support and sales system that propelled the sister company Telnes to rapid growth. He now leads a team of developers at CommandLink to develop the software platform.
When not in front of the screen, Mr. Grey enjoys time hiking in the North Cascades, wood-working, travelling, playing poker and spending time with his two wonderful children and lovely wife of 22 years.
