Dana Greaves, Founder and CEO
Dana founded the company in 1991, delivering custom software solutions to business and government organizations in the United States and abroad.
He has also authored and co-authored a number of bestselling programming books for Que Corporation, and led industry think-tanks, user groups, and leading-edge Silicon Valley technology companies.
With nearly 25 years of experience in the field, Dana leads the Vortx team with a passion for excellence in technical innovation and in customer service. "I cut my teeth in production software environments at Borland, Novell, and Microsoft, then found an even greater passion in producing highly customized solutions for those whose business needs do not fit inside the shrink-wrapped box." Dana says.
