Greg Fookes - Director (BmS Hons)

 

Greg has lived and breathed Oracle for 20 years.  After starting his career with Oracle Consulting, Greg had moved from a graduate consultant to project manager after four years.  Although he had an excellent grounding in the implementation of Oracle products, he realised he needed to broaden his consulting skills and experiences. Five years at Cap Gemini Ernst & Young (latterly CGNZ) followed, where he had the opportunity to take up project leadership roles on many large scale local and international Oracle EBS projects.  Greg is fortunate to have been able to gain experience from a wide variety of clients in multiple sectors, in New Zealand, Australia, Asia, Europe and North America.

 

After Hewlett Packard acquired CGNZ, Greg was appointed as the Delivery Manager for the Oracle Practice, managing the HP team on Oracle based projects.  Greg continued in this role for five years until leaving to start Artios.

 

Greg’s core EBS experience is complemented through his involvement in non-Oracle engagements, including core business process analysis and design, and management of custom web development / integration projects.  While most recently Greg has specialised in project management and service delivery roles, Greg frequently takes the opportunity to be directly involved with ‘hands on’ engagements that utilise the breadth of his Oracle knowledge.  This has included recommending and architecting application-based solutions.  

 

Greg has been a speaker at many conferences both domestically and overseas including multiple Oracle OpenWorld conferences in San Francisco, and the US-based OAUG conference – these speaking engagements provided Greg with the opportunity to share his experience managing complex SOA-based integration projects.
