Greg holds a quadruple-major bachelor’s degree and a double-major master’s degree in business from the University of Cincinnati. He is recognized as a gifted management consultant with a holistic approach to problem-solving. The Edgar Allen Group, named after his father and grandfather, is an assemblage of companies each providing a different area of business service. The flagship and oldest of the group is Professional Business Services, which provides accounting, payroll, tax preparation, business consulting, and related services. PBS began as a typing service while in college and has grown into a firm servicing hundreds of businesses and individual clients. In the early years, PBS services were predominately related to tax preparation, which is seasonal, and so he created Allied Building Contractors to work in the construction industry during the “opposite” season. Today, ABC connects property owners with construction workers by providing marketing and administrative services.

In 1996, Greg created a computer company called E-tech Express, which provides a wide array of computer and network consulting services for small businesses, including design, build, and repair systems; web design and hosting; data recovery; and software evaluation and training. Owning both an accounting firm and a computer business gives Greg a unique advantage in providing services that neither one alone might offer.

In 2003, Greg re-entered the insurance and investment industry when he started Benchmark Financial Services. Wealth creation and preservation are the hallmarks of this enterprise. As an independent agent and representative, Greg helps clients protect their assets and achieve their long-term dreams.

Greg has always had the dream of combining work with pleasure, so he created Blue Planet Adventure Travel, through which he organizes SCUBA, whitewater rafting, zip-lining, skiing, and other adventure travel trips. Business workshops conducted while away from day-to-day stresses help business owners plan longer-term strategies, including retirement and succession.

In 2008, Greg rekindled his passion for entrepreneurial ventures by offering assistance with feasibility studies, start-ups, venture capital packaging, franchise consulting, business continuity and succession planning, and financial management. As a result, Greg is involved in several projects where he provides strategy, financial, and contact services.

Mr. Noe holds licenses as 1) an enrolled agent tax professional; 2) a life, health, property, and casualty insurance agent; and 3) a Series 7 securities and investment professional. In 2007, he was an adjunct professor of accounting and business ethics at the University of Cincinnati. Mr. Noe earned a quadruple major BBA (Marketing, Management, Finance, and Insurance) and a double major MBA (Marketing and International Business) at the University of Cincinnati. He is a service-disabled Vietnam-era vet.

In 2009, Greg was honored by being inducted into The Oxford Who’s Who of Executives, Professionals and Entrepreneurs, The Presidential Who’s Who Among Business and Professional Achievers, and Cambridge’s Who’s Who among Executives, Professionals and Entrepreneurs.
