Greg Gonzalez CEO of SQL Sentry
Greg provides strategic leadership for SQL Sentry and is intimately involved with the product design and development.  Greg founded InterCerve in 1997, a successful Microsoft-focused application development and hosting services provider. He created the SQL Sentry business unit in 2004, initially to help InterCerve’s hosting team combat the pain they were experiencing trying to manage over 50 SQL Servers for hosting clients. The first product, Event Manager, worked so well that a new division was created to continue developing and marketing the software. InterCerve’s hosting division saw strong growth every year until it was acquired by Peak 10 in 2006. This move has enabled Greg and his talented technical team to focus their energies on SQL Sentry software ever since, with dramatic results. Previous experience includes technology consulting for various Fortune 500 companies, and application development and management for Baxter Healthcare Corporation. Greg has a BA in Business Psychology from Miami University in Oxford, OH.
