LEADERSHIP

Gregory Kinder - Founder & President

Greg is the founder and president of MyWorkplace, Inc. and acts as the firm’s chief executive officer. Greg began his professional career as an air traffic controller in the U.S. Air Force and, subsequently, with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). In 1991 Greg left the FAA to join his family’s benefits consulting and brokerage firm in Central California where he immersed himself in learning the employee benefits industry, both self-funded to fully insured options. Greg has a deep-seated interest in technology and began looking at its application to the employee benefits sector. After a couple of unsuccessful attempts to obtain cost effective benefits management solutions for his firm/clients, he began spending his evenings designing software and database prototypes to meet these challenges.

Greg left his family benefits firm in 1998 to found Hourglass Systems, Inc. and release the new company’s first benefits administration system, AdminDirect. In the early 2000’s the system was expanded to include employee enrollment options. The systems continued to grow and evolve through 6 major version releases through 2015. In 2016 Greg began looking at a new generation of systems and the company’s future direction. His vision was to take the baseline admin and enrollment platforms in place, move them to the latest development platforms, and add payroll, HRIS, and employee onboarding modules in order to provide clients with a fully integrated platform which would cover all human resource management, payroll, and benefits related ancillary services. The new initiative was dubbed, MyWorkplace. In order to support the expansion, the firm was reincorporated in Texas as MyWorkplace, Inc. in January 2019 and the corporation absorbed Hourglass Systems in January 2020 through a merger. Greg continues to be directly involved in the design and functional specifications of MyWorkplace software applications, services and networks.
