Gregory L. Hopwood, PhD. Greg Hopwood is a founder of Platte River Systems (PRS). He is responsible for the engineering of the software systems that form the basis of PRS services and is a PRS board member.

After earning his B.A. in Mathematics at University of California Irvine (UCI), he worked his way through grad school on an NSF scholarship by working in the Computer Facility, teaching undergraduate computer science courses, and working full-time at a local computer manufacturer while writing his dissertation. He was awarded his Ph.D. in Information and Computer Science (1978) from University California, Irvine, specializing in software systems design.

Some of the more interesting software systems he has developed include:

  • Computer-aided instruction systems funded by a grant from IBM (UC Irvine)
  • Flight simulator for the Minuteman III ICBM (North American Rockwell)
  • Machine-language compilers for minicomputers used in a first-of-its-kind distributed processing token ring system funded by an NSF research grant (UC Irvine)
  • Pascal-based P-code operating system environment (Varian Data Machines)
  • World-wide web sites (See
  • Most recently, the Design Information Tracking System (DTS), a large database-driven extranet application built in-house at PLX Technology, Inc. His experiences during five years building and refining the DTS system for PLX led directly to the establishment of PRS.

He has also served in non-development management roles for computer companies as Director of Advanced Systems Marketing (Gould Computer Systems), Director of Technical Sales Support (Gould Computer Systems), Vice President of Marketing (Ardent Computer), and Vice President and General Manager of European Operations (Kubota Graphics).

He brings a wealth of knowledge, skill, leadership, and real-world experience to PRS.
