 With his in-depth knowledge of the EU's media and decision-making process, Gregor provides strategic advice for the EU consultancy GPlus Europe to a number of blue-chip companies from the IT, energy and chemicals sector.
 Prior to joining GPlus as a partner in 2006 Gregor spent over ten years in the European Commission as a spokesperson and political adviser to two different Commissioners. His last post was with Commission Vice-President in charge of Enterprise and Industry Günter Verheugen. Prior to this he was the Commission's Spokesman for Agriculture, Rural Development and Fisheries with Commissioner Franz Fischler. He was at the forefront of communicating the Commission's handling of the BSE crisis and was part of the EU's negotiating team at the WTO Summits in Seattle, Doha, Cancun and Geneva.
 During his stint with the European Commission he communicated their position on many of the headline-grabbing pieces of EU legislation, including the EU's new chemicals registration system (REACH), the new legislative framework for the European car industry, the Better Regulation initiative, the reform of farm and fisheries policies, the foot-and-mouth crisis and the Doha Development Round.
 This experience has given him a unique understanding and insight into how high-level policy making works in the EU. His specific areas of expertise are crisis communication and the fields of biotechnology, trade, agriculture, information technology and industry policy.
