Greg leads the team at Red Pepper, bringing 20 years of experience working with marketing teams of global retailers to deliver sales and promotional campaigns.

Greg's core focus is on strategy, client outcomes, operational delivery and product development.

Tim Phillips

SVP, Sales - North America

Tim joined us at the start of 2021, to manage the continued expansion of Red Pepper's presence in North America. While he is a newbie to the Red Pepper team, he's definitely not a newbie when it comes to digital publishing and developing mobile solutions, bringing with him more than 12 years of industry experience. Tim is a family man who recently moved from St. Louis to Atlanta, Georgia to be nearer to his adult kids and escape the ice, but the move hasn't changed where his loyalties lie - he's definitely still a STL Cardinals fan!
