Greg has been in the Archives and Records Management game since 1977 after completing a Bachelor of Arts in History and Politics at Macquarie University, Sydney and the Diploma of Archives Administration at University of New South Wales. He has worked on all aspects of the Records Continuum during his career to date. He became involved in specific electronic records issues when he had responsibility for the Petroleum Data Unit (inter alia) in the NSW State Office of the Australian Archives. Upon his move to the National Office in 1990 he assumed responsibility for developing policies on the appraisal of electronic records and later as Assistant Director Electronic Records had responsibility for the development of whole of Government policies on these issues. More recently, as Assistant Director Records Standards and Agency Training, he has taken on responsibility for generic Recordkeeping policies and the development of an Agency Training Service for the delivery of continuum based training to Government sector clients.
