Greg Smith, President/CEO, Accudata Technologies
Upon taking his position as president and CEO of Accudata Technologies in 2002, Greg Smith reorganized the company to meet the ever-changing marketplace and pursued an aggressive business strategy to diversify and expand the company’s services.
Under his direct guidance, Accudata built its network from the ground up, transforming the company from a single-service provider to the leading source of multiple data-validation technologies and a premier access hub for validating information associated with telephone numbers for businesses and consumers across the globe.
In addition, Greg became the first in the industry to suggest the addition of wireless and VoIP LIDB’s for true caller ID as well as collect calling services on wireless and IP-based phone systems. He expanded his company to reach a new consumer base by developing and distributing Privus Mobile — the world’s first comprehensive mobile caller ID service for smartphones.
