Greg Booras has joined Creative Circle Media Solutions as National Sales Director in November, 2022. He is focused on helping us expand into the magazine industry and accelerate the growth of the company across all industries and product categories. He’ll play an active role in product development as well as sales.
Greg had several roles early in his career that made him a tech expert and innovator. He began as an electronics technician with secret clearance in the U.S. Navy based in Norfolk, Va. He was a computer manager for A.B. Dick Company then co-founder and vice-president of HI-TEK Systems, an authorized Microsoft OEM system builder.
In 1983, Greg joined the Small Newspaper Group in Moline, Ill., where he managed the technology staff, led technology decisions and created Quad Cities Online, an early Internet dial-up service. He managed technology for the Moline Dispatch, overseeing computer hardware and software as well as web site operations.
Ironically, his tenure there overlapped with Tim Benson's time at Small Newspaper Group. Tim is now our lead developer.
Greg then switched from technology to sales. He worked for Town News from 2004 until 2016 as vice president of sales. He helped that firm grow its revenues from $5 million to $17 million during his tenure. While there, he served on the R&D advisory committees for both America East the Southern Newspaper Publishers Association.
At Town News, he worked with Sean Finch, our VP/sales.
In 2016, he joined Mirabel Technologies as national sales manager, where he focused on The Newspaper Manager CRM product line, later adding their Magazine Manager products.
"Like everyone at Creative Circle, I want to see newspapers stay in the hands of local and family publishers,” said Booras. “I’m honored to be joining such a talented team and I look forward to playing an instrumental role in shaping the future of Creative Circle.”
