The Team

team member
Greg Warner / Account Manager

Greg brings over fifteen years of business management experience to Blacktee Systems. Getting his start in the printing industry at the age of twenty as a production worker, he quickly rose through the ranks and was named production manager after two short years. His love of guitar and all things music found him shifting gears and accepting a position as Sales Manager at Guitar Center in Rochester, New York.

Relocating to Seattle, Washington in 2008 Greg took on a new role as medical office manager for a private specialty practice. The itch remained to return to work in the audio and video technology field so he switched gears again accepting a position at Blacktee Systems. His roles include Project Management, technical documentation, as well as day to day operations. Greg is trained in Crestron™ hardware and is currently working towards his CTS.
