UK/Europe Regional Manager
Greg was playing at an international level rugby union when 17 years of injuries from being a grinder finally caught up with him. Through the healing process of yet another surgery, Greg stopped trying to fix the unfixable (his broken body), and started constructing a new dream. The hard work Greg put in as an athlete prepared him for the road to opening a facility that specialized in performance improvement.
Greg came to the NPE team after managing facilities, owning a successful performance center, developing products within the UK and the Australian market, running the world’s first Register of Exercise Professionals in the UK, and most recently being elected as the Chairman of The International Confederation of Registered Exercise Professionals. Greg is an amazing business coach because he not only has over 14 years of experience, but also possesses the passion to listen with an open heart, look for deeper issues, relate to life experiences where he can, and offer open, honest and frank responses.
Asia-Pacific Regional Manager
Tom Hart stopped counting the minutes on the clock in his business development corporate career to embark on the journey to his true vision: opening his own personal training facility. Tom struggled with self-confidence when he first started training and thus undervalued his services. After attending networking events, Tom arranged regular meetups with fellow coaches, and it was there he became aware of the roadblocks he needed to overcome to own his own facility.
Strengthened by self-awareness, advice, and mentorship, Tom opened not one but three fitness businesses. He served over 300 personal training clients including but not limited to, international cricketers, rugby players, wrestling teams, and adventurers. At NPE, Tom helps to clarify his clients’ visions and identify their pain points, so he can help to create the most effective plan for them to reach their dream vision.
James Hansen came to NPE after 5+ years of experience at big four accounting firm Ernst & Young. While at EY, James primarily worked on a US Fortune 15 public company audit, was a top-rated manager over multiple seniors, staff, and an international team, and reported directly to audit executives. James graduated with a Master of Accountancy from the University of South Florida and is a licensed CPA in the state of Florida.
At NPE, James is leader of global financial operations, and his primary responsibilities are financial strategy, profit and loss forecasting, budgeting, and internal controls.
James is an avid gym-goer and enjoys playing pickup basketball every week to stay in shape. He is a sports fanatic and loves watching both professional and college football and basketball. His teams are the Dallas Cowboys, South Florida Bulls, and whichever team Lebron is playing for.

Director of Sales & Marketing
Keith Lidberg joined NPE three years ago after an exceptional career as a pro athlete. He was one of the world’s top pro wakeboarders for more than decade, winning Rail Rider of the Year in 2007 and WakeStock Rail Champion three times from 2005-07. After launching his own clothing line and board brand, he decided to leave the industry to start a new career where he could serve more people with bigger goals.
Keith brings the same energy and enthusiasm that drove his athletic success to his position as Director of Sales & Marketing. Keith’s equally comfortable diving into analytics or leaning on his wakeboarding and trampoline coaching experience to train/coach professional staff, and is always dedicated to how to best create value for our present and future clients.
