Greedville Team

The photos and names of the original GHS Team who participated in the 1998 - 2000 frauds and follow up frauds, going throuugh the motions to create legal barriers to securing justice, are now off their site.  But we copied everything. It was possible for employees on the technical side to remain ignorant of some events when the theft and fraud was taking place. But for legal officers and those handling the finances this was not possible.   At the time GHS was a small company, its management limited to a handful of individuals.  

The ugly fact is, when there is money to be made even normally ethical people will ignore the evidence and believe what is convenient.  

The Green Hills Team

Dan O'Dowd -  who schemed with Senior Vice President, Craig Franklin to defraud Craig's wife in exchange for Craig's assistance in defrauding his partner, Glenn Hightower. Dan and his wife, Amy Chang have profited hugely from their machinations.   Amy owns an equal share of the company, which is about 97% of the stock. 

Site Bio -  founded Green Hills Software in 1982 (ignores the existence of Glenn Hightower, it was all him, him, him.  Dan's driving ambition is to have more money than Bill Gates, who he thinks is stupid compared to him.) and has been its President and Chief Executive Officer since its inception. Before founding Green Hills Software, Mr. O'Dowd was manager of compiler and operating system development at National Semiconductor. He joined National Semiconductor in 1978 to design the architecture for the NS32000 32-bit microprocessor. From 1976 to 1978, he worked at APh Technological Consulting developing some of the first embedded development tools for microprocessors. They were used for developing the first hand held electronic games for Mattel and Mattel's line of home video games. Mr. O'Dowd received a Bachelor of Science in Engineering from the California Institute of Technology in 1976.

Jack Douglas - Vice Chairman - They needed someone who looked normal.  But how normal is Jack?  On a trajectory which promised major success why did he leave and move over to Green Hills, first as a consultant and then to assume a title?
