Enterprise Center names new CEO

SALEM — The Enterprise Center at Salem State University has named Greg Smith, a vice president at Kronos Inc. in Chelmsford, as its new CEO.

Smith, a Beverly resident, replaces Christine Sullivan, who retired in May. He will be taking over on Aug. 1

He has spent more than 30 years in the high-tech and software industries, managing both large and small organizations, according to the Enterprise Center.

“We are very excited about the selection of Greg Smith to lead the Enterprise Center,” said Gordon Hall, chairman of the board of the Salem State University Assistance Corporation, which oversees the Enterprise Center.

“Greg has a proven track record of creating and developing organizations. He brings solid experience, an innovative approach and great enthusiasm to the position. The Enterprise Center is poised to expand in many directions, and Greg Smith is the right person to take the center to the next level and beyond.”

The Enterprise Center is a business growth and development center located on the Salem State University campus. It offers extensive educational workshops and programming targeted to small-business owners and entrepreneurs seeking to start or grow their businesses.

“I see great potential in the Enterprise Center,” Smith said. “... I look forward to working with the business, educational and municipal communities to advance the center’s role as a true partner in the development of the region’s economy and supporting the small businesses that are its backbone.”

Smith graduated from California State University, Long Beach, with a B.S. in business administration and completed the executive leadership program at Stanford University. He also has a master’s degree in nonprofit management from Northeastern University.

Smith is chairman of the board at Lazarus House Ministries in Lawrence, a nonprofit focused on helping the poor and homeless move out of poverty. He is also on the elder board at First Presbyterian Church in Ipswich, as well as Amirah Inc, a North Shore safe house and rehabilitation center for individuals who have been victims of sex and labor trafficking. Greg and his wife, Nancy, have four children.

The Enterprise Center at Salem State University arms business owners with the knowledge and skills to start their business, grow and succeed. The Enterprise Center is at 121 Loring Ave., Salem, MA, 01970.
