Our Team

Gregg Potter

Gregg Potter | Founder, President and CEO

Gregg Potter is the Founder, President, and CEO of AnythingWeather, a company that provides a pioneering mix of custom weather data and hardware solutions to clients around the globe. Growing up in Colorado, just east of the Rockies, Gregg knew early on that weather would be his life’s work. By 13, he was already chasing tornadoes, and would watch in awe as thunderstorms in his backyard grew up to 60,000 feet in a matter of minutes.

After co-founding Widespread Weather Services in 1995, Potter developed a first-of-its-kind weather paging system, which was acquired by AccuWeather in 1997. After spending a few years as Project Manager for WeatherPager, Potter launched AnythingWeather in 1999, to provide customized weather solutions with a customer-centric approach. Under his leadership, AnythingWeather now services more than 5,000 companies, providing an extensive menu of weather-related services to diverse industries around the world.

Potter holds a B.S. degree in Atmospheric Science from the University of Kansas and is an associate member of the American Meteorological Society (AMS) and the National Weather Association (NWA). When not in his office, Gregg can be found at home in Palm Desert, CA, enjoying his time with his wife and three small children, or out on a golf course, working on his short game.
