About Greg

  • Member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand
  • Member of the Governance Institute of Australia

Greg started his career as an articled clerk with a Chartered Accounting firm and once fully qualified as a CA, his next move was into commerce with a multi-national Advertising Agency. In 1991 he was offered a position with a leading Sydney law firm, a position that appealed due to his deep interest in business law. He subsequently transitioned from Finance Director to General Manager and then to Chief Operating Officer and finally to Chief Executive Officer with various notable Sydney law firms. In July 2021 he was happy to accept a COO/CFO position with Foye Legal.

Career Highlight

After working for more than 20 years in the highly demanding and quality-driven legal services sector, Greg’s experience with law firms has been extensive and fulfilling. This includes strategic and operational management, mergers and acquisitions, strategic planning, understanding, and influencing business direction, leading the implementation of strategy, team building and motivation, the formulation and introduction of profitability and productivity improvement initiatives, pro-active management of firm profitability and the successful promotion of a performance-based culture. Greg has loved working in the legal environment in the knowledge that law not only provides the “grease that lubricates the wheels of commerce” but also facilitates and promotes justice and fairness in the wider community.

Why Foye Legal

“I was attracted to the firm’s outstanding culture and values and their alignment of these values with the firm’s strong culture as this provides an essential foundation for sustainable growth, unsurpassed client service, and an excellent client experience. Helping law firms grow and prosper has provided me with a great deal of professional satisfaction and I look forward to a continuous contribution in this regard.” – Greg.
