Greg Allen is known to friends (and foes) as a sometimes civic enthusiast (sometimes contrarian) and a perennial volunteer in preservation and city planning. His more recent efforts in preservation have focused on Historic Kansas City, where he is a past president and devoted advocate for Kansas City’s scenic and historic assets, leaving him time as well to dally with young grandkids and steward the Allens’ longtime home in the Roanoke Historic District. Greg has chaired the KC Landmarks Commission, the Union Station Preservation Advisory Committee, the Missouri Advisory Council for Historic Preservation, and has served on the Board of Advisors of the National Trust.  Greg is the President of Allen Financial Corp.
