Billhighway Names Doug Gregory CEO, Founder Vince Thomas Chairman

TROY — Billhighway Wednesday announced the appointment of Doug Gregory as CEO, succeeding Vince Thomas, who is transitioning to the role of chairman.

Thomas founded the company in 1999. 

Billhighway provides cloud-based financial management technology to nonprofits, integrating financial and donor data management.

Gregory previously served as COO of Plex Systems, a Troy-based provider of cloud-based manufacturing management software. At Plex, he helped pioneer Plex Online, installing this technology at over 500 plants worldwide, ranging from startups to multi-billion dollar manufacturing companies.

Gregory has been with Billhighway since last September as an integral part of the leadership team. 

“Doug’s combination of experience, technology acumen and strategic insight are critical to Billhighway’s growth,” Thomas said. “His operational experience is second to none, along with his shared belief in customer commitment.”

Added Gregory: “I have always been a believer in the power of technology to fundamentally transform the everyday, whether in our personal lives, business or particularly nonprofits. The opportunity to help our client’s business grow financially stronger through the use of technology is why joining Billhighway was such a natural decision for me.”

As chairman, Thomas will continue to be involved with business development, team culture and a commitment to help Detroit start-ups.
