Greg began his career with State Farm Insurance in the early 80’s as a college intern. After college, he went to work for them full-time in their Regional Office in Winter Haven, Florida. In 1995 he moved to Salisbury to open his own State Farm agency. Greg has received numerous awards from State Farm, including being a multiple recipient of their highest honor, the “President’s Club,” awarded to only the top 50 agents out of over 17,000 nationally.
Since moving to Salisbury, Greg has been heavily involved in the community. He has served multiple terms on the Chamber of Commerce board and was Chairman of the Board in 2012. He is an active member of the Salisbury Civitans, past member of the Rowan County Planning Board, past member of the Rowan County Personnel Commission, and immediate past chairman of the Rowan County Airport Advisory Board. He is past Chairman of the Rowan County Republican Party and, until recently, served as President of the North Carolina State Farm Political Action Committee. He is an active member of First Baptist Church of Salisbury.
However, the best part of his life, he will tell you, is his family. He and his wife, Kim, have been married for 26 years. They have three children. Their oldest daughter, Taylor, is 23 and works for State Farm Insurance in Charlotte. Their second daughter, Lauren, is 22 and a pre-med student at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia. Their son, Brandon, is 20, and will be studying mechanical engineering at UNC Charlotte in the fall.
Greg was successful in his first run for public office, being elected to the Rowan County Commission in November of 2014. Then he was honored by this fellow commissioners to be elected as board chairman.
He is an avid racquetball player and is currently pursuing his private pilot’s license at the Rowan County Airport.
