Greg Greenwood (nicknamed "Woody" since childhood) is the CEO/Executive Director of BEN Colorado. A veteran Coloradan entrepreneur, Greg has founded several companies including those in technology, manufacturing, distribution, motorsports, retail, services and non-profit—and like all entrepreneurs, has seen a variety of successes and failures to keep him humble. Greg's entrepreneurial energy was passed on to him by his father at the age of eight years old when he started his first business mowing yards and selling hanging baskets and bags of kindling firewood in his Little Rock, Arkansas, neighborhood.
Greg most recently sold comCables, a network infrastructure manufacturer and low voltage distributor he founded in 1999, to The Audax Group, a multi-billion dollar private equity firm based in Boston, Massachusetts. He is the founder and CEO of Idella Wines, a boutique winery in Napa Valley, California, and is the co-founder and CEO of Colorado Thought Leaders Forum. Greg is a current Board Member of Wish for Wheels, serves on several private company boards of directors, and is a former board member of Colorado Companies to Watch.
Greg is married to his wife, Tammy, of 21 years. While he is passionate about his business endeavors, his other life interests include building community relationships, investing in inner-city-at-risk youth, cycling, SUP surfing and enjoying wine.
