“Leadership & Culture: Why They Matter More than Ever”
FEATURED SPEAKER: Greg Moyer, Co-Founder & Principal at Gazzow
Our featured speaker, Greg Moyer, is a seasoned HR executive and consultant and has been recognized nationally for his expertise in building highly engaging and productive workplace cultures. Greg, along with Snagajob CEO, Shawn Boyer, has been credited with creating a culture that drove phenomenal results, both as a great place to work and as one of the fastest growing technology companies in the U.S.
In 2000, Shawn founded Snagajob, the nation’s largest marketplace connecting employers with more than 60 million registered hourly job seekers. He bootstrapped the company with the help of friends and family, and in 2006, Shawn completed the first round of institutional funding, bringing on two VC firms. Here’s Shawn’s description of that key milestone:
“At the time, the Company was doubling revenue year over year and had about 25 employees. Subsequent to the funding, the goal was to continue that type of growth trajectory, and in order to do that, we would need to scale the Company to 100 people in 12 months and take it up to 200+ within 3 years. To help with that growth, Greg came on board in 2006 as Chief People Officer.
Together with our newly formed leadership team, we worked on building the framework for how we would scale the Company; from our strategic planning to aligning our leadership team, to recruiting practices, to our onboarding processes to our communication initiatives, to our rewards and recognition, etc. These critical pieces are all of what we now refer to as our People Strategy, and in our opinion, comprised the key to the Company’s successful and rapid growth.”
During the six and one-half years that Shawn and Greg worked together, Snagajob was named to Fortune Magazine’s and the Great Place to Work® Institute’s Best Small & Medium Workplaces list for six straight years from 2007-2013 (including 5 top 10 finishes and a #1 ranking in 2011) and to Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500 for five consecutive years, growing revenue during that period by nearly 1,000%.
Formerly, Greg served as SVP and Chief People Officer of Snagajob where he worked closely with the Founder and CEO in building a nationally renowned workplace culture that led to the company being named the Best Small Company to Work for In America by Fortune Magazine. Under Greg’s leadership, Snagajob was named to the nation’s Best Small and Medium Company’s List for seven consecutive years. Snagajob was also named to the list of America’s Winning Workplaces by Inc. Magazine, and on a regional level, as the Greater Richmond Area Employer of Choice for 3 consecutive years. During his 7-year tenure, Snagajob grew by more than 1000% and was consistently named to E&Y’s 500 Fastest Growing Technology Companies in the nation.
Greg joined Snagajob from PeoplePoint, a human capital consulting firm focused on the technology industry that he founded in 2001. Prior to PeoplePoint, Greg was the Senior VP of Human Resources at Cadmus Communications — and before that, he was the Corporate VP of HR and Admin for Dyncorp/CSC, an IT and professional services firm in Northern Virginia with more than 20,000 employees. Earlier in his career, Greg held VP HR positions with Black and Decker and Lockheed Martin.
While most of his career has been in the field of human resources, Greg also served as a public school administrator and teacher early in his career. He holds an MS with honors from Temple University, and a BS with honors from Elizabethtown College. He is also a graduate of the Transformational Leadership and Executive Coaching program at Georgetown University.
