Greg Meffert

Greg Meffert, founder of the tech encryption company Logistix, literally volunteered to be the first-ever Chief Technology Officer of the City prior to Katrina and was given the title Deputy Mayor. When the storm hit, Deputy Mayor Meffert and his crew managed the only links the international media had to city officials. Mega-companies from Sony to Microsoft cited the surveillance camera security canopy and wireless network he implemented for the New Orleans Police Department as the number one design in the U.S. Greg's education includes a B.S. in Psychology and Computer Engineering from Baylor University and the equivalent of a Master's degree in Computer Applications from Tulane University. An inventor, he holds numerous patents for internet technology and awards such as Computer World Magazine's 2006 World Premier IT Leader Award.
