Remembering Greg Newton


Early in April 2017, Zazz founding partner Gregory Newton passed away. He was the heart of our engineering team, a strong leader and a sharp mind.

Greg was also a founder of Delta T Systems, where he spent twelve years as Vice President, Chief Engineer, and designer. During his time with Delta T, he designed and developed many engine room ventilation products.

In the ten years prior to his work with Delta T, Greg owned and operated his own company. He provided marine survey, engineering, consulting and project management. This culminated with the engineering and construction of the 112 ft. “Margaux”, a high-speed aluminum motor yacht awarded “Most Innovative Motor Yacht” of 1994 by Showboats International. This vessel served as the development prototype for the original automatic pressure controlled engine room ventilation system at Delta T Systems.

At the time of his passing, Greg was in his early 60s. We were proud to work for him, and we thank him for all his hard work.
