CASSUG Leadership Team

Greg Moore (Group Coordinator)

Greg Moore Greg Moore is a graduate of RPI. There, he majored in CompSci, but probably spent as much time hiking, canoeing, caving and rock-climbing as he did studying.

He started working with SQL Server 4.21a in 1995 and has survived numerous upgrades.

He's been a Director and later VP of IT at several startups including PowerOne Media, TownNews and Traffiq and now consults. These days, when he's not busy with playing with SQL Server or spending time with his family, he can often be found underground caving or teaching cave rescue with the NCRC.

While his focus is on the operations side of DBA, his interests include DR, performance and general IT problem solving.

He is the author of: IT Disaster Response: Lessons Learned in the Field.

Ed Pollack (SQL Saturday Coordinator)

Ed PollackEd has over 17 years of experience in database and systems administration, developing a passion for performance optimization, database design, and making things go faster.  He has spoken at many SQL Saturdays, 24 Hours of PASS, and PASS Summit. This led him to organize SQL Saturday Albany, which has become an annual event for New York’s Capital Region.

Sharing these experiences with the community is a top priority, and encouraging everyone to take the leap into public speaking and engaging others, a passion.
