Greig’s passion for electrical systems and boating developed well before he completed school so, after secondary school on Queensland’s Gold Coast, he undertook a Certificate 2 in electrical engineering and then gained an apprenticeship with Riviera. By the third year of his apprenticeship he was designing electrical systems in Rivieras and quickly moved into the design office.
He briefly left the company to gain wider experience, working for marine electrical company BEP and specialising in CZone digital technology. He went on to design and built the entire electrical system for the new Belize motor yacht brand and rejoined Riviera as Electrical Manager when Belize owner Wes Moxey returned to head the company.
He and his team were responsible for the design, production and service of every electrical system on every motor yacht. In 2016 his role was expanded to include electronics systems.
