As a VP of Quality Assurance, Greg Sypolt speaks and writes about how others can rethink the way they approach quality excellence. He has spent the majority of this career in quality assurance with an engineering mindset, gaining experience in areas such as tool development, automated testing, and DevOps. In the last five years, he successfully transitioned Gannett from a traditional manual testing strategy, coaching multiple development teams to build quality into every stage of the continuous integration pipeline. Quality is a journey, not a destination. Greg is building a culture of software-quality excellence in which every member of the organization shares quality responsibilities. The mindset is clear, and it requires a culture that embraces quality in every stage of the development lifecycle. His focus is being the voice of quality from the start of the intake process, not at the end, ensuring development teams are building quality software that customers love. Outside of his role at EverFi, Greg is passionate about do-it-yourself projects around the house and recently single-handedly finished his basement himself.
