Meet the Team: Greg Rose, Delivery Manager
At BTM Global, we believe our work is about more than technology. It’s about our people and our relationships with clients and colleagues. We hope this “Meet the Team” series gives you a better understanding of the personalities and passions that make up BTM Global!
Greg Rose is no stranger to retail technology, having worked for retailers and Retek/Oracle Retail. Read on to learn why was Greg excited to explore a new angle of retail tech with BTM, his passion for the outdoors, and what keeps him interested in his work.
What are your responsibilities at BTM Global?
As a Delivery Manager, I’m ultimately responsible for the success of a project. This includes managing the internal functional and technical teams, project financials, and the relationship with the client.
What excites you about your work?
First, the variety: I enjoy working on different projects, and with different people on both the BTM and client side. The personalities you get to meet and interact with across the clients can be both fun and challenging.
Secondly, the challenge: The Delivery Manager at BTM has more responsibility than at other companies where I worked. I like the idea of owning the success of the project and also having responsibility for the client relationship.
Why did you decide to join the BTM team?
I’ve worked for retailers and I’ve worked for Retek/Oracle Retail. I had never worked for an implementor before and I liked the thought and challenge of being on a different side of the fence, so to speak. I enjoy challenges and learning new things.
During the interview process, I liked the culture of collaboration and the family feel of the smaller company. There are also several people at BTM who I have worked with in the past, and I liked the idea of working with them again.
What keeps you interested in the retail technology space?
Retail technology is really where I started and where I have spent most of my career. It’s a space that I relate to and experience on a daily basis. I like that I can make immediate impact to the experience of both clients and their customers.
Tell us about your life outside of work.
I enjoy spending time with my wife and two kids. We attend a lot of soccer games and listen to a lot of piano! I also enjoy travel and the outdoors. I’ve travelled to India, Japan, Guatemala, in addition to places in the U.S. My family and I had a trip planned to Costa Rica before the COVID pandemic hit. I enjoy experiencing the food, language, people, and culture of the different places I visit.
One of my highlights each year is my trip to the BWCA with my son. We spend five days canoeing and portaging through the wilderness, fishing, hiking, camping. It is so quiet and peaceful. It’s nice to spend time completely unplugged from technology. I also spend a lot of time on my bike. This is one of my quiet places I can go to relax and recharge my mind while I get a great workout.
