With over 30 years in IT development and leadership, Luke has a focus on how systems and data are used within the organization. His overriding belief is that IT and systems exist to support the work. As such, IT needs to closely coordinate with every part of the organization to deliver functionality which supports best practices and informed decision making. Luke has served in nearly every role during the course of those 30 years, from technical support, through development and architecture, into senior management. Luke has worked for Department of Defense contractors, oil and gas companies, multi-national manufacturing and marketing organizations, as well as small start-ups both in and out of the technology field. After a career spent enabling corporations to better employ their resources, Luke decided he wanted to shift to the nonprofit side of the aisle to bring those same skills to the effort to help people.
