John McPhee returns to Grey Group Training

We hinted at the expansion of Grey Group’s training program when we brought you news of Grey Group’s acquisition by Mission Ready Equipment a couple months ago. GGT today announced John “Shrek” McPhee has returned to Grey Group as their director of training, while teaching as an instructor.

“As a retired Army Sergeant Major, serving at the absolute pinnacle of warriors, with extensive combat experience in multiple theaters,” said Grey Group’s Eric Page, “no one knows training better!”

Some folks in the industry also recognize Shrek’s expertise and have offered to support his training efforts by offering his students a discount on Arc’teryx, Velocity Armor, Mayflower Consulting, Kryptec Camo, Sheriff of Baghdad, and Combat Flip Flops products.

The move will not be without some growing pain associated with McPhee’s departure from Alias Training. Students that booked classes with McPhee through Alias will have to contact Grey Group to re-enroll. If you fall in this group, contact GGT’s training coordinator, Ramia Whitecotton via
